Additional observations This is a parish in the Diocese of Sacramento; Vacaville is off the I-80 about halfway between Sacramento and San Francisco.  St. Mary’s began as a mission church in the 19th century, and became a parish in 1947.  There have been five St. Mary’s churches built, the first in 1867 and the 5th and current building in 1956.  The church underwent an extensive renovation that transformed it into an attractive, mission-style building.  Click here to view the interior of the church:  The parish has a religious goods store located inside the church.
