We have now been to Mass here four times. Excellent homilies and faith filled community. It is fulfilling to combine a relaxing vacation with the blessing of participating in Mass, being fed by God's Word and Jesus Himself.

We went inside St. Mary's and were amazed at the stain glassed windows of this church, the altar area. It has an old pipe organ. One is so at peace once they enter this church. So beautiful!

You will admire the architecture, the detail in the stained glass and the history. the interior is hand painted with detail that look like trim. The two children a boy and a girl whose protective guardian angle are depicted with them was made from actual photographs of the children who died at an early age.

Beautiful service and very nice people. We looked at their website for service times. The church is very close to to the town park and had lots of parking.

Nice place to visit and look around. The architecture is breathtaking. The stain glass is gorgeous. The older building was locked up but we walked around and enjoyed the area. Nice walk close to many other attractions.

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.
