St. Mary's Catholic Church is a historic church at 159 Washington Street in Winchester, Massachusetts. The church is part of St Mary's Parish which includes St Mary's School. Both are part of Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston.

The church building was built in 1876, replacing Winchester's first Roman Catholic place of worship, a chapel built on the same site. Originally clad in wood, this church underwent major renovations in 1897 under the direction of architect P. W. Ford, a noted area designer of churches, at which time it was clad in brick. The building is richly decorated, with corbelled cornices and decorative buttresses.[2] The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989.[1]
