St. Mary’s Church was built so that the residents of Port St Mary did not have to travel to the Parish Church as this was ‘very inconvenient for them, especially in the winter season’. The site was given by Mrs EM Gawne of Kentraugh and the building paid for by public subscription. Bishop Rowley Hill consecrated the church on 25 January 1884. The church has an excellent organ and many beautiful stained glass windows.

St Mary's is one of the four churches in the Parish of Rushen which is situated in the south west corner of the Isle of Man, serving Port Erin, Port St Mary and Cregneash.

The parish of Rushen is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of Sodor and Man’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
