I attended the St. Mary's Catholic school in the last of the few years it was offered. It was definitely the best experience of my childhood school days, what an honor it was to have gotten blessed with the experience.

I can't review the church itself, but the view from out side is very nice, it is well worth the few minutes to stop and look. It is off the main road, but from the church parking lot you can see for miles.

We just happened upon this church and the spectacular view from the hill top across the valley. Very peaceful and restful. My wife enjoyed taking pictures of the surrounding area and it was perfectly located between the multiple wineries we visited.

What a beautiful site for a beautiful church! The view was amazing! While we didn't go inside the church, the exterior was very eye catching from the road. We pulled in to admire the exterior when the view caught our eye.

St. Mary's Catholic Church is a beautiful structure atop St. Mary's Mountain. Worth the time to look at the building and to take in the view from the south side of the church. Quite inspiring for this flat lander.
