“Spend Some Quiet Time Soaking Up The Beauty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

This Episcopal church had me ready to convert ... so exceptionally beautiful. My stepdaughter and I were fortunate enough to be the only visitors one recent Saturday afternoon, and the gloom and faint musty smell contrasted with the brilliance of the Tiffany stained-glass windows. Sitting quietly in this jewel-box, looking at the side-chapels and feeling the atmosphere of prayer that wrapped around us was a beautiful and oddly uplifting feeling. There's a guide you can purchase that explains the windows, but take time to feel the church itself, too.

“Amazing Tiffany stained-glass windows!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

Both a self-guided and volunteer guided tours available. Check for times on the door as they vary. A remarkable building on its own but the knockout feature are the windows with about a dozen authentic Tiffanys. Go in late afternoon when the light is perfect. wonderful place for a rainy day or hot afternoon respite.

“Stain Glass Windows”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

This church is on the register of historic places and has the most amazing collection of stain glass windows anywhere, including 10 by the Tiffany glass studios. Pick up a copy of the stain glass window self guided tour at the desk or better still take one of the several tours of the building offered each day. Please remember to leave a donation.
