Overview

St. Mary's Church is a favorite stop for Newport visitors. Established on April 8, 1828, it is the oldest Roman Catholic parish in Rhode Island. The church was designed by Architect Patrick C. Keeley of Brooklyn, New York and was designated a National Historic Shrine on November 24, 1968. It is a quaint stone church of second period Gothic design, and perhaps most famous as the wedding location of Jacqueline Bouvier to John Fitzgerald Kennedy on September 12, 1953.
