Attended 9:30 am Sunday Mass and was breathtaking !! Mass was said by a young priest who lived in the area when he was younger. A very holy man. Very friendly ushers. Thank you Lord for the beautiful day.

This is the first time I visited. So I have no idea how many if any modifications or remodels may have occurred at the church.
