The people and Priest where all very friendly. The church also allows parking for the day for a small fee. Parking is expensive in Gatlinburg, so park at the church support it's... More

This Catholic church is about the size of a large chapel but can get packed on a summer Sunday. It was built primarily for visitors and on my recent visit was overflowing. A requested show of hands indicated about 90% were visitors. A friendly priest with a good sense of humor. A pleasant and relaxing place if you are looking... More

It may seem odd, but churches are a relaxing feature that a family can enjoy on a vacation or even a stay cation locally. The peace and quite is a great way to ease the stress of the day.

If you are vacationing in the Gatlinburg area and would like to attend Mass, please spend some time at St. Mary's Catholic Church in town. It is up the street from the Gatlinburg Convention center and most of the congregation are visitors. Father is glad you came to visit and usually addresses his homily in a way that makes good...

If attending Mass, arrive early. Gets very crowded. The clergy didn't seem all that friendly from what we gathered, but overall a nice Mass.

We go to Sunday Mass here each trip to the Smokies. I find it interesting that each and every time they inform us that this church is here FOR the VISITORS to the Smokies! They say that they have a small amount of local parishioners, but that the church depends on its visitors. They always have the out of town... More
