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.

We went to the 11:00 Mass and it was prefect for us. The singer at Mass was wonderful. We felt very welcome and at home, as we always do when attending a Mass in whatever town we are vacationing. The church building was quaint and very nicely appointed, and I might add their A/C was working well.

St Marys was a nice quaint Church. Because its old, and kind of small, the slightest nose is distracting however, especially if you are in the rear. I lean more towards the traditional side when it comes to my Sunday Mass, and this was far from traditional. However, I was pleased and did not have any complaints with the Mass.... More

We went to Sunday Mass at St. Mary's and it was a wonderful experience! The community was very welcoming as it is comprised of very few actual parishioners, most of the support for the church operation comes from donations from tourists.

We have been attending Mass here for 6 to 8 times a year for about 25 years. The parish is small but very friendly, and extremely gracious to visitors. The stained glass Stations of the Cross hang in front of the windows and are beautiful. If you are looking for a friendly gracious Mass, this is your place!!!!
