We attended one of many Masses available. It was very cool going to a Latin Mass and receiving communion at the rail. The music was amazing

This old church is a gem. The architecture is stunning and they still have mass here as usual. A beautiful church to have a wedding or just to attend services.

Old World charm and cavernous feeling once you are in the middle and see the high painted ceilings and the intricate stained glass windows.

The Church outside and inside are so extraordinary architecture . From the stained glass, solid granite columns, older wooden pews, and the beautiful grottos. The wife and I enjoyed our time here. We spent a few hours here.
