Beautiful place for a wedding

This is a Memphis Catholic landmark. It is a beautiful old church with a Our Lady of Lourdes grotto inside the church. It is also the oldest soup kitchen in the United States going back to the 1860's or 70's.

Beautiful place- we lite candles and just looked at the surroundings. Extremely beautiful and nice to just sit and watch people and stare at the windows.

Our daughter was in Memphis for Grad School and this was her church. We loved attending mass with her here when we visited -- such an old beautiful church. The congregation is small -- definitely plenty of room for visitors. Even if you are not Catholic and you have traveled to Italy and loved visiting the beautiful Catholic churches --... More

The stain glass windows are a great part of this Catholic Church. I love the side alcove for Mother Mary. The homily was good. I enjoyed the few homilies I have heard there.

The chapel is beautiful. The stain glass makes for lovely pictures. This is a perfect place not only for worship but weddings that are medium to large. It is old but still in excellent shape. The court yard is very private - great for pictures. It is downtown so there is easy access to all the entertainment with reception areas.

My sister's and I have volunteered at this church for three years in a row and the work they do is impeccable. Their Ministry consist of caring for the homeless, providing meals, clothing by not only providing spiritually but physically as well.

St Mary's has been serving the community for since 1870. Perhaps not the most achitechturely ornate church but the interior is beautiful. The Saint Mary's soup kitchen has been serving meals to those in need six times a week for almost 150 years. Truly an asset to the community.

St. Mary's Catholic Church in downtown Memphis is a very beautiful, spiritual place of worship. The wood carved altar and stations of the cross were done by German immigrants and are gorgeous. I have played the organ at this church many times and feel that I am in the very presence of the Lord when I am here.
