Beautiful Old Church.

Very enjoyable location and clergy! Our priest was young and stood about six feet six inches with a great voice and sermon. Young priest with old time delivery.

Visited with my elderly mother. Beautiful and historic as it is where the Kennedy family and POTUS attended. Mass is in Latin. Perfect for my elderly mother who grew up with mass spoken in Latin.

We attended Christmas Eve Mass at St. Francis Xavier. It was a beautiful church, the sermon engaged the children, and we felt really comfortable there. This is not our home town, but I would highly recommend that you attend a service here when you are in the area.

This church is a favorite of mine even as a local! The history is enriched and the beauty unsurpassed. A must stop on your next trip to the Hyannis area of Cape Cod!

I believe this is the church where JFK and Jackie got married. It's nice to reminisce about those time. Nice church but not too exciting.

Once inside this church it was easy to visualize how it must have looked back in the 50's - 60's when Joe Kennedy brought his young family in to Mass.

Tiny church nothing special. We did not go in for long since they were having a Spanish Mass. The front door was pretty.
