This is a beautiful old Catholic Church located in a residential area of Old Town Alexandria VA. The church has been maintained in much the same manner as when first constructed. Just viewing the interior of the building is heart warming.

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 organ and choir.

Wonderful church to enjoy the coolness and quietness to pray and to reflect on your day. Located in the historic old town.

This Church is part of historic Old Town. It preserves the Catholic tradition that is also reflected in their school. The priests are very approachable, young and dynamic. Wonderful congregation.

One of the oldest churches in the US, this is a beautiful building located in the Old Town section of Alexandria. We could not get inside the day we were there, but still enjoyed the many wonderful architectural details of such a grand building.
