This was a great way to kick-off the New Year by attending Mass here. The church is chalked full of historic nuggets and it's beauty and architecture takes you back to another time. The priest delivered a great sermon and even threw-in a couple of jokes here and there. The church is walking distance from the main strip. We are... More

This is a beautiful church just one block off of Main Street (downtown). Services are still conducted in the church so be respectful around and in the church. It does not take long to see the church and it is certainly worth a visit.

We found this beautiful, small Catholic church as we were looking for one to attend a Sunday morning mass this past weekend during our weekend getaway. We attended their 9am Sunday morning mass and the church service was beautiful!

One of the two churches I visited in Fredericksburg was St. Mary's Catholic Church. While it is a beautiful church, it is moderately ornate. Representing an important part of Fredericksburg history, it is worth visiting. Starting with the influx of German immigrants in the middle of the 19th century, it is closely linked to Holy Ghost Lutheran Church. They were... More

My husband and I have visited Fredericksburg for weekend getaways for years. When we decided to get married neither of us had a question as to whether or not this unique town was the spot to do it. We made a special trip to scope out two places... one to hold the ceremony and one to hold the reception. We... More

A great looking church with beautiful stained glass windows. Sunday masses at at 7:30, 9:00, and 11:15. The church was generally full, but welcoming to newcomers.

At least walk buy and go in and say a prayer. While doing that notice how beautiful the church is. Glad I stopped in for a few minutes to show my appreciation.

Beautiful German church that reflects the praise to God. The statues and paintings are very lovely. You will understand more of the devotion to the Lord by the settlers in this area.

I have been in churches all over the world and this one is definitely high on my list. Loved that a bilingual mass is offered.
