The music is always beautiful and compliments this old beautiful church. I love that the old altar has not been demolished. Parking is a bit challenging, especially with all of the construction. Love all the priests who say mass here. Since it is a parish...More

This is a very beautiful church in the middle of the city. There is only on street parking at meters. There are several steps to climb to enter. The alter and windows are amazing to see. We went for a wedding so I'm not sure...More

There was to be a wedding at 5:00 in the lovely sanctuary. The programs listing bride, groom etc. were awaiting guests. Even though the ceremonies were not to begin for 3 hours, all was safe inside this historic edifice.

I was married here, oh so many years ago. It's only a few blocks from City Hall. It is old and has been beautifully restored.

In Milwaukee for just a couple days, and visited Old St Mary's early in the morning for the 7AM mass. What an awesome place, and about 50 business people there for the morning mass to start their day.

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
