I went to Europe last year and this beautiful, old church is like a mini version of the big cathedrals there. Stained glass windows, flying buttress arches, and beautiful wood detail. Worth a stop.

Another gorgeous Catholic Church in Hill Country and South Central Texas. Wonderfully, skilled painting inside the church. Located on a wide boulevard in the quaint German town of Fredericksburg. It's a great way to seek some solace during the day or to attend Mass while you are in town.

We were passing the church and decided to stop inside. Beautiful architecture, peaceful. There's a book at the back of the church which describes the various stained glass windows and carvings.

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.

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.
