Pretty church
Feb 2020
We went to church on a Saturday evening, and appreciate the mass being later. It was a nice service, and is a pretty building.

A Cute Catholic Church in Banff
May 2019
Totally different than in Europe that a catholic church usually very big with high tower and fully interior. This church is small, low and very simple but it is not less beautiful and serene. Beautiful location, the mountain in the background.

Mass is great
Oct 2019
We attended Mass at St Mary's in October 2019. We used Waze to find the church which was easy. Parking is adequate and the Mass was very good. I believe the Paster's name was Father Don. He is a very good speaker and the church is very clean and attractive. The service was contemplative and relaxing. The Homily was too the point and inspirational. Thank you for a beautiful Mass, Father.

A beautiful Catholic Church in the heart of downtown Banff
Aug 2019
One of the first things that my husband and I sought in Banff was a Catholic church. We were directed to St. Mary's of the Assumption, the only Catholic church in downtown Banff. This church is beautiful with the picture of the Holy Spirit hovering over the altar and other statues of saints. We requested to have the Sacrament of Reconciliation from the parish priest, who readily administered it to us. We also had the opportunity to participate in the evening Mass of the day. The parish priest is like a loving father to the community. We received lots of graces for being in this church. May God bless the parish priest and the community.

Wonderful experience
Aug 2019
My wife and I were visiting from Australia and attended Mass here. We spoke to the Parish Priest prior to mass who welcomed us to the church. At the start of Mass he asked where people had come from. Most were from various parts of America and Canada, us Aussies and a couple from Germany. The atmosphere was friendly, the sermon memorable and a very satisfying and reflective mass. The history of the church and stained glass windows are also of interest to visitors.

Christmas Mass
Dec 2018 • Family
What a beautiful Parish! We attended Christmas Mass then received a wonderful history from the Priest of the Parish. It was a great way to start our day. I would recommend to everyone to attend mass there or to at least visit to learn it's rich history and view the stunning stained glass inside. The parish was so welcoming to visitors. May they continue for many years serving the town of Banff. I hope to return one day!

Peaceful
Jul 2018 • Couples
The stone work on the outside of St. Mary's church blends well with the mountain landscape. It's lovely on the inside as well and certainly worth a visit or to attend a mass. I found it the perfect place of peacefulness for reflection away from the crowds and to say a little prayer.

Beautiful church
Jul 2018
We came here for Saturday mass. We arrived 15 minutes before mass and were delighted to hear the history of the church. It was beautiful inside and out. We were happy to still be able to attend mass while on vacation.

Lovely tiny church
Jun 2018 • Couples
Thrilled to wander across St Mary’s, we attended early on Sunday and I was able to have confession. Mass began at 0900 and confession began at 0815. It was a sell-out! The church was packed. We enjoyed the priest and his homily. They allow little children to attend the beginning of mass with the congregation then go off with Sunday school teachers. We enjoyed our morning at St. Mary’s!
