My visit to the church, was to see where my fathers family grew up and it's a lovely old church with a school attached to it. Inside was lovely.

Stumbled across church while walking thru lovely Rose Gardens in park. One of nicer churches on trip. Due to service in progress, couldn't get good view of inside. Will revisit if we return.

Brought the kids to mass here last month, they wanted to come back and explore the church. Its tastefully stripped back to the stonework and the woodwork is amazing. Its worth a visit just for the peace and tranquility
