What a beauty!!!

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

Visiting a church, even when you are not linked to religion, allows you to get in touch with the culture and traditions in town at the time of constructions, tells you a lot about population and how particular town has evolved into the current.

Small compared to the great Cathedral's in Europe but very pretty and worth the time to stop go inside and enjoy the beauty. The stain glass window are very nice.

One of Texas's painted churches, and very fine it is. Obviously loved by the community it serves.

This is the only painted church in Fredericksburg and is very beautiful. Attached is a new hall w/complete kitchen. The hall can be divided. Has a nice size lobby and restrooms. The hall is rented out.

My wife and I enjoy weekend Mass at this beautiful cathedral-styled church. It is on the tour of "hand painted" churches in Texas. The community is large and welcoming. Good energetic priests.

What a beautiful church. Richly decorated both with the old wood and architecture, as well as the Christmas decorations. What a wonderful Mass.
