There is something truly peaceful and calming about this church. Even if you are not at all religious, it is truly worth a visit. The architecture is beautiful, and the inner sanctions of the church are a sight to behold. The statues are beautiful both inside and on the grounds. Visiting the grounds and the Stations of The Cross, and... More

Peace... whether taking in one of the many different services that's offered, or walking the beautiful grounds. Many little trinkets to purchase as reminders, or enjoy a simple lunch. The grounds offer much room for picnics for family or private time.

Church is pretty new, the grounds are interesting to a point. You can see the bay from the top of a tower that is worth the walk up
