St. Mary's Catholic Church began with a handful of German immigrants in 1846 and, since then, has been a continually growing spiritual family. The famous twin towers of the two churches, the Marienkirche (1861) and the new St. Mary’s (1908), have long been beacons of faith, hope and love here in Fredericksburg and throughout the Hill Country. Our community has also been blessed with St. Mary’s Catholic School which has educated and formed our children since 1856.
Planning a visit to St. Mary's Catholic Church in Fredericksburg? A short guided tour is held after the 9am Mass every Sunday.
On June 21, 1983, St. Mary's Catholic Church was added to the National Register of Historic Places.
For over one hundred years, the following prayer has been said at the conclusion of each Mass: Oh, my Jesus, in union with all the angels and saints, I adore you in the most holy sacrament of the altar, in which you are concealed for the love of me. I adore you as my Lord and my God, my Creator and Redeemer. Amen
