We attended the Saturday evening vigil at St Francis Xavier. The church has maintained its original style but has been completely refurbished. The church interior is beautifully maintained. the mass was simple and the people were very outgoing.

We year rounders here on Cape attend or belong to several churches. Small town in the winter. We like variety. But our favorite one is this one. Most of us were raised Catholic. I remember when Mass was in Latin. Its a lovely church.

Though a service was being conducted, we were able to enter and view the spectacular interior of the Church - nothing like that is built today.

I loved the decor inside and out. Tours were not offered in November but we did attend mass and learned a lot by reading these reviews and online. Very close to shopping district.

It was so nice to have the opportunity to see the church where our past presidents received a lot of their upbring. The person that spoke to us regarding the church was so knowledgable. We really enjoyed this.

We thoroughly enjoyed out guided tour of the Church. The docent was very knowledgeable and provided a very interesting presentation about the history of the church, as well as it's connection to the Kennedy family. Would definitely recommend including it in your visit of Cape Cod.

Beautiful and spiritual setting. One can only meditate and give thanks for such a beautiful plce of worship. Enjoyed the time and solitude while there. A remarkable place to gather ones thoughts on Faith.
