Beautiful old church --peaceful and reflective shrine. Renews the spirit. Architecture and stained glass windows are so beautiful --definitely worth a visit.

We got married here. It is a beautiful church in a great neighborhood. If you are in the area for St. Joseph's Day, they put on one of the most spectacular alters!

I liked this church because the mass was only 45 minutes. It was a very beautiful church with intricate designs and statues. If you are in the area, stop by and attend the mass. Take time to pray and light a candle in the worship spaces.
