We went to mass there on a Sunday morning and really enjoyed the experience. Most people who sit in the pews are tourists but the few parishioners there are real nice folks and grateful for the visitors.

We attended Mass in February. There was a visiting priest celebrating who was very good homilist. The sanctuary is beautiful and we were happy to see that they need to expand the offices and classrooms in an upcoming building project.

Located in the heart of Gatlinburg activity, St. Mary's church was easy to find, welcoming and a great place to worship. They also allow tourists to park for $5 (no charge while attending mass).
