A short walk from the main street in Hyannis is the church that the Kennedy Family would visit while they were in Hyannis. In fact, on the end of one pew is a plaque commemorating John F. Kennedy. This quaint church is still active.

Small, quaint lovely Church just a few blocks from the JFK museum. When we arrived, there was soft background music of a mens choir which made the visit to the Church quite soothing. Very moving experience.

This is a nice simple Church , It located in Hyannis and has some history to it. While the Kennedy's did attend this church ,it was only while they stayed in Hyannis. Today it is an active parish that welcomes visitors
