St. Mary's Catholic Church is a wonderful parish. We enjoy worshipping here when we vacation in Gatlinburg.

Wonderfully quaint little church nestled in the mountains. Just a few blocks off the parkway. They also have a wonderful gift shop, but bring cash or check as they do not accept cards.

After mass make sure you visit the gift shop. it is small has much of the typical religious items with a few special items. There is plenty of parking on the church grounds. Arrive a few minutes early to visit the grotto in the back of the parking lot.

We had researched ahead to ensure we would have somewhere to attend Mass on our trip. St. Mary's was a beautiful Church, easy to find, very close to the Gatlinburg strip. I even bought a magnet in the little shop in the back. Make sure you take time to attend Mass and thank God for your beautiful surroundings, and pray... More

Stopped in here for Sunday Mass at 9am with Rev. Punnackal. Mass was about 1 hour long. The church is nice inside & it is not overly crowded. The singer is really great & you can tell he really enjoys singing. They have a nice gift shop in the back of the church that they open at the end of... More

We have visited here a few times and just love the amazing Indian priest. He is so easy to understand and gives a very moving homily. We will return to this quaint little church when we return. We like the 7 PM mass on Saturday night.
