This church is absolutely gorgeous. The priest was very welcoming and the music was soothing, beautiful. Unfortunately, the women behind us were rude and judgmental. They shoosed me while I whispered to my daughter trying to explain what the priest was doing on the alter. They also continually shoosed a young gal with Downs Syndrome. Not very Christian, "Ladies."

Did not go in, but loved the outside and the side complex with the statues and fountain. Nice little place to walk thru and sit for a bit and reflect.

A wonderful Church with a rich history. This church brings together various cultures all celebrating the Catholic religion. Celebrating its being named a Basilica, a statue of the Pope stands outside.

I love this beautiful, Catholic church in the heart of downtown Phoenix! I always make time for a stop at St. Mary's Basilica to light candles and visit their amazing gift shop whenever I'm in the Phoenix area. Everything about this church is beautiful!

I enjoy visiting Basilicas and Cathedrals on my travels. This isn't a very large Basilica, but if has a lot to offer. The stain glass windows are brilliant and I really enjoyed the Stations of the Cross. a must see in Phoenix

Very nice, quiet, and beautiful. I sat in there and meditated for a bit. It's air conditioned, so it's nice to get out of the heat and be one with yourself.

Even if you're not catholic, you have to see this church, architecture, grounds and better still attend a mass. We went for Easter morning service, and it was packed, with lots of kids dressed in their finest. Beautiful. The hymns were sung in English, Latin and Spanish...what a treat. Sermon by a wonderful monk that made you feel you knew... More

Love this church. Went to grade school here back in the late 60s but it is no longer there. The architecture and statues are just wonderful. I would go there for noon time mass when I was working downtown. There is a kneeler with a plaque where Pope John Paul visited the church.

This is a beautiful basilica for the area it is in. Nothing compared to basilicas in Europe for Southwest United States it is beautiful and very peaceful. It has been refurbished and they did a wonderful job.
