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

Mass was being held and like many of these catholic churches, you will not be disappointed. It's within walking distance from most sights near the shopping district. So check it out!

Attended Mass here while we were in Fredericksburg. It is an architectural gem of a church and well worth a visit. Stopped in the original church building next door after Mass as well. Father McKenna gave a great homily and really has a lot of passion. Look forward to the next time we can celebrate Mass there!!

This is the westernmost example of the german/czech/polish painted churches. Great architectural gem set in a ah historic town.

St. Mary's Catholic Church was beautiful. Well worth the time for a visit. The church has a very quaint setting and the architecture is very nice.

Attended a beautiful wedding here. Father McKenna is very personable. The church is amazing to look at. Was built in 1902. The new community center next door is perfect for large receptions. It was completed in 2012.

The smaller church with the plain blue stained glass windows was simple, yet beautiful and peaceful. The larger church has the stained glass more ornate, the church itself quite beautiful as well. Wooden pulpit, curved stairs and carvings worth seeing.

very pretty. requires a short amount of time, right on the main street. 15 minutes to take pictures and read the historic marker is all you need

I have been on the painted church tours around Texas, but none are as majestic and beautiful as St Mary's. Well worth the visit.

Beautiful, will take your breath away as soon as you open the door. A lot of detail in the stained glass windows, sculptures and statues. The beauty of it all. So refreshing.
