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.

A beautiful quaint little church with so much history taking place there. Wish there would have been a docent available to give a tour.

The church was unlocked, after 5:00pm last Tuesday so we stopped for quick self-guided tour and to say a prayer. The church is very quaint and it was interesting to think about Caroline Kennedy getting married there and Maria Shriver too.

The Church is a beautiful building that President Kennedy and his family always attended while on Cape. The remaining Family, we were told still attend this Church. It is on South Street and easy to find.
