“Beautiful & Reverant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

This is a beautiful gem right in the middle of downtown Indianapolis. It is free of charge and has a great connection to history. The bells of this church rang out as Lincoln lay in state at the capitol building. Impressive architecture.

“Lovely venue year round, but especially at Christmas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

This medeival inspired church is as quiet as a chapel during the day but worshippers quietly slip in and out after a quick prayer at noon time. Christmas time is special here. Come in for some peace during a hectic day.

“Classic elegance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

While I'm a member of this church I also frequent downtown for tons of activities. I love seeing my church right in the middle. Whether it be for the Indy 500 parade, super bowl parties or just any city celebration. The church is always reaching across the globe and local. It you want to find out more about the people of Indianapolis make this a stop.

“Great stained glass windows”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2012

This gothic church at Monument Circle is not a Cathedral as what might come to mind by the word but looks like a great old country type church. It houses some of the nicest stained glass windows that I've seen Certainly worth a look for its historical value and very beautiful in its own right.
