Rhode Island's most treasured masterpiece. A visit here should be on everyone's visit list when in Rhode Island. The volunteers who SAVED this masterpiece did a fabulous job restoring it. No need to fly to Rome and visit the Sistine Chapel. The frescos, paintings, stained glass, woodwork, floors, etc. are all beautifully restored and just GLEAM. Best to call ahead... More

On our way to Providence we took a detour and stopped in Woonsocket Rhode Island. We read in Trip Advisor about St Ann's and stopped by hoping we could visit unfortunately it was closed, however we were fortunate that will the president of the nonprofit that oversees the building let us in and took us on an outstanding tour.

The name is really deceiving and doesn't do this church justice. This is a former Roman Catholic Church with just amazing fresco paintings and stained glass (look at the photos). My wife and I are only a couple hours drive away, have been frequent visitors to Rhode Island, and yet never heard of this until an article in a local... More

The tours which are offered on Sundays are very interesting and there isn't a church with wall to wall and ceiling frescos anywhere else in the US.

Had a tour of the church and it has marvelous frescos. I can't remember when I've see more anywhere. In the basement of the church there was Cajun entertainment. Lots of fun and dancing and very nicely decorated.

I am a life-long resident of Woonsocket and had never been in St Ann's Church prior to my recent visit for a breakfast supporting Mt Saint Rita's Rehabilitation Center. The Fresco paintings and stained glass windows were breath taking. A magnificent spot for any function. I will return soon.

This is one of the most beautiful churches I have ever seen. It is a must see if you are in the area. I have not been in the Sistine Chapel but I doubt htat it is any nicer than St. Ann's.
