Originally established for German immigrants to St. Louis in the 19th century, Old St. Mary’s enjoyed a second rebirth as a spiritual and cultural home to Hungarian immigrants who arrived after the Hungarian Revolution in 1956. Today St. Mary of Victories proudly serves the descendants of these groups as well as the south Downtown business community. Visitors and numerous tourists enjoy the quaint, decorative charm and tranquility of the old church and its landscaped Old World courtyard. Masses, including weddings, funerals and regularly scheduled weekday and weekend services are still held at the parish. A fully equipped church hall and catering facility also operates as part of the parish outreach to the general community and St. I.ouisans of all faiths.
