I attended a service with approximately 1,200+ of my closest friends. It is a beautifully calming interior with a working pipe organ. It's a shame only 100 people on average attend service here.

VIsit St Mary's for the architecture and stay for the prayful atmosphere. I have visited this house of worship many times. It is one of the most peaceful, prayerful places I have ever experienced. My stress melts away when I enter the doors.
