In 1993, St. Mary's parish merged with three other Lawrenceville parishes (Holy Family, St. Augustine, and St. John the Baptist) in 1993 to form the Our Lady of Angels parish. St. Mary's Church remained in use by the new parish for a few years, but closed in 2004 when operations were consolidated at St. Augustine. In 2007 the former St. Mary's buildings were purchased by the Catholic Cemeteries Association, which administers the adjacent St. Mary Cemetery. The church building was converted into a chapel for the cemetery.[2]
