Our Brand Proposition

St. Mary’s Credit Union is like a bank, only better. We value people over profit, customers instead of shareholders and communities above corporations.

Our History

Since its founding in 1913, St. Mary's Credit Union has offered its members an alternative to traditional banks. Because members own the credit union, every decision we make is based on the best interests of our member/owners.

St. Mary's Parish Credit Union was founded in 1913 to promote savings and provide a source of credit for the city's mostly blue-collar French Canadians employed in shoe factories. Today, St. Mary's Credit Union serves members from all walks of life, including newly-arriving immigrants coming to the United States in search of their American dream.  

Until recently, St. Mary's Credit Union primarily served the residents of Marlborough and surrounding towns. Utilizing the benefits of technology and electronic delivery channels, St. Mary's now offers membership benefits to a much broader geographic region that includes all of Middlesex, Worcester, Norfolk and Suffolk counties.

We take pride in our rich heritage and great history. However, we are also a very forward-thinking institution, and we know that growing organizations cannot rest on their past accomplishments. At St. Mary's Credit Union we are always looking forward to offering our members new products, new services, and new technology, while keeping the friendly, reliable service they have come to know and trust.
