What a lovely church and such a great building. Apparently this is the oldest congregation but not the oldest building in Fredericksburg. It is still pretty old. The church has gorgeous lines and stained glass windows. Please pay it a visit !

Went to Mass there and were blown away at the number of attendees (standing room only) and the sheer beauty! This church is a must "experience".....we left quietly in awe.

The marquee over St. Mary's School, built in 1923, said it all -- "Science - Religion - Patriotism". How prescient for the day. A message of restoration for today's America.

Our visit was actually on Easter Sunday in 2016. We really enjoyed mass. This is a beautiful church. We highly recommend touring it and stay for mass if you can. Wonderful experience.

Very old church with traditional styling. The mass was in English and lots of people there. Great place to do Sunday mass.

There are 2 churches on this sight. One is one of the original painted churches. Both are amazing! A must see in Fredricksburg!

Every time we go to Fredericksburg, we always visit St. Marys. The Church itself is gorgeous. You wouldn't expect it in a small texas town. It reminded us a lot of the churches we went to in europe!

one of Texas' painted churches and well worth a quiet visit to a historic building that depicts the early architecture of Texas' "gothic" churches

Beautiful church. It was during mass, so we could not wander around but the windows were gorgeous. Apparently no 2 biggest Catholic church in TX size wise.
