yes,Jackie Bouvier married andd became Mrs.John F.Kennedy or Jackie Kennedy. this was the church where Rose also went some mornings when in the area. The windows are outstanding as is the history of the church itself. Well maintained,this building is easy to get to and is open when church services are going on.my wife loves to go here to say prayers for her parents and siblings who are no longer with us in life.

This Roman Catholic Church was made famous when in 1953 Senator John F. Kennedy married Jacqueline Bouvier. It is easy to find as it is on a main avenue, Memorial Blvd. Even though smaller than the European counterparts, it is quite beautiful with the very high ceilings and all the stained glass. There is a certain elegant ambiance about St. Mary’s. St. Mary’s was constructed over a hundred years later—1848-- from the other historic church in Newport, Trinity Church. Visiting both churches would be a worthy and fulfilling. It was an easy walk from Newport’s harbor area to find St. Mary’s. If you continue on Memorial Blvd, you will come to the beginning of Newport’s famous three and a half mile “Cliff Walk.” There is plenty of see in Newport besides the famous mansions. If you found this review to be “helpful” in any way, please press “LIKE” to let me know.

I was so excited to see St Mary’s as I knew Jack & Jackie Kennedy were married here. I couldn’t get inside but on the steps there is an information board telling about the historic wedding. Grounds were very pretty.
