We were in town for an event at the Convention Center and went to Sunday mass at the Basilica. The exterior and interior are beautiful, with gorgeous stained glass and stations of the cross. The mass lasted almost exactly an hour, which is 10-15 minutes...More

I visited St. Mary's Basilica during the morning on a weekday. I was absolutely blown away by the architecture beauty of this holy place. Well worth the drive to visit. I LOVE visiting old historic churches. This one did not disappoint.

I love looking at the way different churches are "decorated". It was a shame there were no leaflets available to say anything re the characters depicted in the windows or who some of the statues were. I'm sure it is obvious to a Roman Catholic...More

Visited the basilica, but were not able to attend mass. Nevertheless this is a beautiful church inside and out. Gift shop was closed when we were there. Great place for quiet contemplation.

We attended the noon mass on a Tuesday and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The pipe organ accompanied the musician and several parts of the mass were in Latin. The church is beautiful; just lovely windows & statutes. FYI: gift shop is closed Monday & Tuesdays.

I have been in several cathedrals and basilicas and this wasn't as elaborate as some. Many stained glass windows depicting scenes from the Bible. Easy walk from Rosson House if you're in the area.More
