Visited for Mass on Sunday in July. As a visitor attending, felt the warmth and welcome of not only the pastor, but from other members of the parish. Lovely and beautiful place to attend Sunday Mass in Fredericksburg.

Take a few minutes to step inside this beautiful old church while in the Fredericksburg area.! The architecture (both inside and out) is something to be admired, and the many stained glass windows should not be missed?

I was so glad I took the time to look over this beautiful church. It was not only ornate and lovely, it was also welcoming. Definitely worth the time to explore and pray.

What a lovely church and such a great building. Apparently this is the oldest congregation but not the oldest building in Fredericksburg. It is still pretty old. The church has gorgeous lines and stained glass windows. Please pay it a visit !
