We visited the Church over Christmas and was very happy with all the activities for adults and children. It was very refreshing to see how engaged the priest were with the congregation of all ages.

Despite that mass was in Spanish it was very, very moving. An Italian did some translating for us! There was a 10 yr old boy that absolutely sang his heart out. Our Christmas blessing.

nice to see whole families praying together. Attire was casual and natural, no pretense. A simple church, compared to the wealthy ones in Europe, for the people. Communal singing was pleasing.
