My family and I like to make it to Sunday Mass whenever we get the chance while travelling. We were fortunate enough to attend St. Mary's before we left town heading home from spending Spring Break in Gatlinburg in March. This was a friendly little church and perfect for us.

Very nice church, parishioners were very friendly. They allow you to park in the parking lot all day for $5, and you can come and go all day as needed.
Although a Chritian, I am not Catholic. I attended a mass with two catholic friends while visiting Gatlinburg. I was struck by the simplicity but attractiveness of the church.

I'm so old I still can remember when this church was not even built yet in the mid-fifties. Airport Road was deserted back then---nothing out there!
