We stopped by to visit this church on our getting to know the town. It is small but nicely painted. We visited in the early afternoon and nobody was present there. The inside was very light.

We were on a Christmas weekend Get-A -Way-From-It-All and staying in Kerrville Texas. My husband had wanted to go to a Christmas Eve midnight mass. We could not find one in Kerrville, but saw one listed for this church in Fredericksburg ( about 30 miles away). We drove on over and the Church is exquisite, something off a vintage postcard!...

Using masstimes.org we discovered a noon Mass on Tuesday which we attended. This was in the original (older) church). A local parishioner was leading the Rosary as we entered about 11:45 am. Very reverent. Mass was beautiful with young men as Altar Servers. Thank you Father!

It's a pretty little painted church in Texas. Not to be compared with the old Catholic churches of Europe, but not bad. Worth popping in for a quick look.

This is a very nice church inside and out. The stain glass windows inside are amazing. The church is well kept.

This is one of the "painted churches" of Texas, and a beautiful one it is! Gorgeous painted ceilings, altar and an antique organ that is beautiful in its own right. We've been lucky enough to hear choir performances here and it is breathtaking.

My wife and I visited this old church with a family member looking to schedule a wedding. The decor was very interesting and a must see if you are catholic or like old churches.

Regardless of your faith, this is a must see...the architecture is like churches in Rome. Entering this church, there is an instant calm that comes over you, you can feel the spiritual presence of being in a holy place. Even just to look at the architecture is amazing.

This is a beautiful church. I visited from out of state for a brief time. Both parts of the church were open. At least one person was in each chapel when I entered, but it was otherwise quiet. I love these old churches and I am thankful for the people who keep them in good condition.

We are not Catholic, but were there at coming Saturday mass. People were so friendly and asked us to join them in worship
