We are not Catholic, but were there at coming Saturday mass. People were so friendly and asked us to join them in worship

Gorgeous historic church. Go visit, meditate, pray, see its beauty. They just don't build churches in this grand manner anymore. The architecture is stunning and you feel so reverent in it. The organ pipes up in the balcony and stained glass windows are quite spectacular.

What a beautiful church and flourishing parish. We attended the 7:30am Sunday Mass and were surprised to see so many people. Beautiful, spirit filled place of worship.

We love going to this Beautiful Church! It reminds us of our own Catholic Church at our hometown Shiner, TX. They have very friendly greeters, the priests have an impressive Mass!

St.Mary's Catholic church is a wonderfully cared for place of worship. We have attended Mass here and when we can not we still take time to come and be with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

My granddaughter was married in December 2015 in the Old Original German Kirke, St. Mary's Chapel. She wanted a small, intimate wedding and this was perfect. It is small, plain, yet beautiful! There is a lot of history to the building. When visiting the large,newer church, be sure to stop in for a private prayer in the chapel next door.... More

When we walked in we were consumed by the beauty of the building and its many gorgeous statues. Being the year of Mercy, they have a gorgeous Divine Mercy statue.

The outside of this Catholic Church is just beautiful, but the inside is even more astounding. The stained glass windows inside emphasize the life of Mary and they are just beautiful and a definite highlight. We stopped by during the week so it was a nice peaceful spot to enjoy for a short time.
