One of the "Painted Churches" of Texas, this church is wonderful surprise! Upon entering, I was in awe of the architecture, beautiful paintings, stained glass windows, and most of all, the feeling of utter peace and unity I felt during Mass. Whether you are Catholic or not, I recommend visitors check out St. Mary's and enjoy this stunning gem in... More

The inside of this church is exquisite. The stained-glass windows are just wonderful. There are two sanctuaries, a school and an office building in the complex. There is a section in the back of the sanctuary on the corner that has many self help books that are really good.

Such a beautiful church!!! We had mass Saturday night, June 20th. We did not have a cantor but the voices were beautiful. Father did a great job. The only bad thing was the pews are too hard!!

A very traditional Catholic Church with beautiful stained glass. Step in and take a moment to light a candle and say a prayer.

We attended Sunday morning mass while on a weekend in Fredericksburg. I wish St. Mary's was my parish! It's a very beautiful and spiritual church with traditional statues. The congregation was very friendly and they even offered a church tour after mass. We didn't have time to do the tour, but next time we will plan for that. Even if... More

My dad taught me to find a church / attend Mass even when on vacation. I could hear his voice reminding me as we arrived in Fredericksburg, TX. last January. We located the church and found the Mass schedule - arrived a little early on Sunday morning - greeted by a Priest with an authentic Irish brogue. I found it... More
