“Beautiful!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

Very beautiful inside and out. We were able to go inside and look around and take pictures. Located in the city center so one does not need to drive far to see this beautiful landmark.

“Beautiful Church”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

This is a huge, beautiful church that is far more impressive than I ever expected in little Charlottetown. The doors were open when we walked by in the morning during the weekday and we were able to walk right in. We were even allowed to take pictures (just not during services).

Location is in downtown Charlottetown within walking distance of all the attractions.

If you are at all interested in beautiful architecture or churches, check it out. Takes 10-30 minutes maximum.

“Must look inside”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

This church is as beautiful, if not more beautiful, on the inside as on the outside. Don't just walk by and view the exterior. Walk in and appreciate the solitude, the stained glass, the altar and the pipe organ awaiting you on the interior.

“nice looking church”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

Very quiet and peaceful. Nice to look at inside. It is within walking distance of downtown area. I would say 10-15 mins max inside the church.
