Welcome to St. Mary Catholic Church
on the Rocky Boy Reservation!

Rebuilding St. Mary

On Saturday, December 14, 2019, St. Mary Church had a tragic fire. We are grateful that no one was hurt in the fire. However, the church building was a total loss. The church was the spiritual center for both Catholics and non-Catholics on the Rocky Boy Reservation in Montana. It served the people of the Chippewa Cree tribe for 40 years at that location on the reservation. Many tribal members found healing, love, compassion and mercy there as they participated in many Sacraments and services that marked important milestones in their lives — from birth to marriage to death. While the building is lost, the spirit of the people here remains strong, and we are working to rebuild St. Mary Church. In doing so, our hope is to continue to bring God to the people on the Rocky Boy Reservation and provide a place of hope, community and faith for those who seek it.
