“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

If you appreciate beauty, don’t miss this important part of Jasper. The 235 foot tower is hard to miss. But the real treat is inside this 1880 sandstone church. After the Romanesque ceiling takes your breath away, check out the Swiss stained glass windows, Italian marble alter, Austrian mosaics, 1902 communion rail and Holtkamp organ. Then note the statues, the stations of the cross and the thickness of the walls. Do not forget your camera!

“Its a church”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Nice church if you like churches. But unless your really a fan of churches and 1900's architecture its not really an "attraction"

“Spectacular Church”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

This Roman. Catholic Church is one of the largest in Indiana. The German Gothic interior rivals those found in Europe. Beautiful stained glass windows sponsored by German immigrants who settled in the area in the mid 1800's. Well worth the time to tour!

“Go for the stained glass”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Built in the 1800's this is a very beautiful building. The stained glass is something to see. The church was built by church members and everyone had to contribute to the building. They give free tours during the Stassenfest held every year the last weekend in July.

“A beautiful, peaceful and historic church.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

The minute you walk in this huge old German church you are first filled with awe, then serenity. From the beautiful marble floors, the inspiring stained glass windows and the majestic organ in the balcony, the feeling of this congregation's respect and love for their place of worship is obvious.
