So much history, all US Presidents, Prime minsters brass placs indicate were President Ragan sat. and VIPs all attend Sunday Mass. Not to be missed beautiful inside, and beautiful gardens outside.

The annual festival was in full swing, local police band music and vendors with local crafts. The Church was beautifully decorated with exotic flower arrangements. A wonderful experience.
