  • Saint Mary's is a beautiful, old church and most Masses there are dignified and transcendent. I'm not a great fan of guitars and folk/pop music at Mass, so I always try to attend Masses that feature o...  more »
  • We went for their 8:30 am service and parked in the near by parking lot reserved for the church. If you need to leave as soon as the service is over, don't park here. People will fill this parking lot...  more »
  • Wonderful church to enjoy the coolness and quietness to pray and to reflect on your day. Located in the historic old town.  more »

  • I'm on business travel and just realized this church is close to my hotel. Noon daily Mass was well attended and presided by a relatively young priest. Very beautiful old sanctuary. Bulletin suggests an engaged parish with community. I enjoy old churches and will keep this parish in mind next time I travel to Alexandria.
  • It's a beautiful church with a beautiful service. I loved they mix in Latin prayers. The only thing I didn't like about the Mass I attended this past weekend was how the homily became a fundraiser promotion; it took away from the Mass.
  • Warm. Beautiful old church. Only 8.AM weekday Mass for working people. A blessing for me for so many years - especially in the the years of sicknesses before my wife passed..
  • New to area, messages are good, delivery by priests need improvements. I don't feel a spiritual connection so far with any of the clergy. But the blonde woman who sings at Sunday's early mass is wonderful, and worth getting up for. I will keep trying different clergymen for that spirityal connection. The church itself is stunning, and the architecture is beautiful. Very old school. B+
  • A beautiful Catholic church in Old Town Alexandria. Many opportunities to learn, worship and serve.

Where to stay in Alexandria

Old Town boasts a number of high-end hotels that provide easy walking access to some of Alexandria's most popular restaurants, bars, and attractions. However, these are not typically budget-friendly; those looking to save a few dollars should consider a hotel or motel located on Jefferson Davis Highway. Though not technically within the city boundaries, these accommodations are considerably cheaper and often within walking distance of the metro. Alexandria is also home to a number of charming bed and breakfasts, several of which are located inside historical buildings.
