This is a lovely little Catholic Church tucked away just off the beaten path in Gatlinburg. The Mass times are posted out front and the priest was very welcoming. Happily our Saturday evening Mass was packed with visitors to the area. There is a little gift shop in the back of the church. I was so excited to find this... More

Unfortunately when we arrived the ere was no Sunday evening Mass so we did not manage to get in. The building looks really nice and there is a good size carpark around the church.

We stopped in for Mass while on vacation at this pretty little church in Gatlinburg. There aren't many local Catholics so this church really exists for the tourists. The people and Priest where all very friendly. The church also allows parking for the day for a small fee. Parking is expensive in Gatlinburg, so park at the church support it's... More

This Catholic church is about the size of a large chapel but can get packed on a summer Sunday. It was built primarily for visitors and on my recent visit was overflowing. A requested show of hands indicated about 90% were visitors. A friendly priest with a good sense of humor. A pleasant and relaxing place if you are looking... More

It may seem odd, but churches are a relaxing feature that a family can enjoy on a vacation or even a stay cation locally. The peace and quite is a great way to ease the stress of the day.

If you are vacationing in the Gatlinburg area and would like to attend Mass, please spend some time at St. Mary's Catholic Church in town. It is up the street from the Gatlinburg Convention center and most of the congregation are visitors. Father is glad you came to visit and usually addresses his homily in a way that makes good...

If attending Mass, arrive early. Gets very crowded. The clergy didn't seem all that friendly from what we gathered, but overall a nice Mass.
