Everything about this church was magnificent - the sanctuary's altar and stained glass date from 1906 and are German created. The statuary is just wonderful, the wood carved railings, confessional and albo are old world quality. The special feeling of holiness the church provides is truly memorable.

I visited many beautiful churches on a visit to Germany some years ago. Thought this might compare..and it was beautiful and compared well with the churches in Germany. While not quite as ornate as some it was a beautiful and peaceful stop after a day of viewing God's handiwork of the beautiful wildflowers in the area in spring. The stain... More

Thank you very Much St. Mary's for letting our Church group come see your beautiful Painted Church. We had a tour set up with another group that canceled on us last minute and it really did make our day to get to see the beauty of your two Painted Churches.

We just happened to drive by and WOW! This is the most beautiful place. A must see for any visitor! The architecture is what caught my eye along with its size and beauty. The grounds are well maintained. This is a beautiful piece of history.

The structure is very impressive. The stained glass windows in the church are many and beautiful. Vibrant colors even on a cloudy day. I've been to Germany and many of the churchs there have been rebuilt after the War. True they are beautiful but this church was built by Germans in 1846 and 1906. There are two churchs to see....

This magnificent small church is well worth seeing. Gothic architecture, beautifully painted organ pipes, and two unusual stained-glass windows featuring a young boy and a young girl with a guardian angel.

The church is in mint condition. It is absolutely beautiful! The stain glass windows are worth spending some time on.
