One of Texas's painted churches, and very fine it is. Obviously loved by the community it serves. I thought the bold stained-glass windows rather detracted from the delicate painting of the walls and ceiling. but I wouldn't have missed the two windows above the altar that show a little German girl and a little German boy.

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.

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!!

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.
