St. Mary's is a wonderful spot to rest and reflect. Whether you visit the church itself or simply stroll through its lush park, you can easily melt away some stress. Pope John Paul II's visit is marked by a plaque and a statue. Visit the gift shop if you have time. It is on the ground floor and offers several... More

The church itself is beautiful and the little park next door is a nice spot nestled right in downtown Phoenix. But the Franciscans there are also wonderful, so welcoming and friendly. Great place!

Exactly what I would expect for an old church in the desert! Definitely worth a stop if your in downtown Phoenix. Its across from the convention center.

This is a beautiful old basilica across the street from the convention center. It is open during the day so it is easy to stop in to pray or just enjoy the atmosphere. Daily Mass is at noon and there are several Sunday Masses.

I was staying downtown so walked to the Basilica for Mass. The interior has beautiful stained glass, but even more wonderful was the welcoming community and the priest. The Mass did run almost 90 minutes, so plan for a longer service.

My 14 year old was most taken by the peacefulness. In the middle of downtown Phoenix one may think a lot of noise but no. Very nice and quiet, beautiful. A must see.

The church is located in downtown Phoenix. There is easy access from the I-10 Interstate. The church is beautiful inside and out and there is a lovely little park beside the church.

I was expecting more for some reason. It was a beautiful place, and I'm sure those who worship there feel very comfortable. It wasn't something I would go out of my way to see again though.
