St Anthony's is a massive church that is beautiful to visit. Over the school year they offer a monthly concert played on their classic organ, free with a "free-will offering."

One of the most beautiful churches I have ever seen! I have been to many of the older churches in the US and Europe. Highly recommend visiting this one.

I was raised Catholic and St. Anthony's was my parish church so I am well qualified to expound on its virtues. The steeple is one of the tallest objects in the city and can be seen from quite a distance. The church is of Gothic design and is about 100 years old. Another reviewer said the outside was dirty but... More

Be prepared for a "Wow!" experience for beautiful interior. I have been to churches around the world. This is a world class church interior! Best appreciated when interior lights are on.

We found the doors locked, so went to the Perish Office and hit the buzzer. After a few minutes, a lady answered. We told her that we wanted to see the church. In a few minutes,... More
