    To be able to visit one of the oldest Catholic churches in Phoenix sure is a religious experience. Beautify architecture and great landscaping.  more »

    The church is simple, boring. The place is clean and there is a simple park close by. There is not much to see in Phoenix.  more »

    St Mary's was a great mass experience and it would have been better if I could have gone to a regular mass.  more »

    +JMJ...Church history just pours from the main and side altars! For believers and non-believers alike the architecture, paintings and statues are worthy of admiration. I entered this historical Church building, a house of worship and prayer, with awe and interest. Was able to join the community for a week-day Holy Mass. Was surprised to see that so many took time from their work schedules spending their lunch break to enter into the spiritual oasis of refreshing prayer. Walked around the lovely, lush grounds and was pleasantly surprised by the life-sized statue of the holy pope, now a Saint, Pope John Paul II. Wished I lived closer than Cottonwood so as to be able to stop in from time to time just to sit in the quiet of this holy house.

    Gorgeous and down to earth. I liked how welcoming they were and how they made Palm Sunday special by closing off the street. I feel that people were happy and diverse at this congregation. I enjoyed the Mass.

    Old school place of worship. Beautiful. D-Port, IOWA 7/1967-12/1985. In AZ since 1/1986.

    Loved it. Saturday mass had ended when we got there, but there was someone on the organ and it was beautiful.
