Old St. Mary's is one of Milwaukee's oldest churches. Although smaller than many churches, it is one of the most beautifuland a very vibrant parish as well. It's downtown and worth a visit. Unfortunately, it is not unlocked during the day. To visit, come during daily mass (7:00 am and noon) or on Sunday mornings.

Small but ample to host a wedding; quite old but well kept ; historical but in the downtown what else is left to describe, No fees to enter; a quick 15 mins is enough if you are not going for the mass.

The church is quite old and lovely. I was pleasantly surprised to see so many people attend the Ash Wednesday services at lunchtime. I'm not sure who was leading the service

This is a beautiful church with gorgeous stained glass windows. For those of us who work downtown, they have a noon Mass on holy days that takes about 45 minutes (so you can go over your lunch hour).

While a little staid on the outside, the interior is beautiful. It has a very modern central cross over the altar. The seating arrangements are flexible which can be a plus. THe acoustics are a little echo-y but still very good.

Take a moment and step back in time, very good example of a traditional Catholic Church, you can visit anytime. Check the mass schedules for times. Great pictures!

I have season tickets to the MSO Pops Concerts. Before attending concerts, I always attend the 4:30 Saturday Mass. The music is very professional and fills the church. They have extraordinary priests that give thoughtful inspiring homilies. The Church is beautiful and not modern. A lot like the Church I attended many years ago as a youth. I especially enjoy...

This is in the downtown area and is small and beautiful. Has a warm and cozy feeling for you to enjoy while saying a prayer or two.
