5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

We were fortunate to have the Bishop of Savannah say mass last Sunday. The artwork is amazing...a beautiful place to worship.

This church is as beautiful inside as outside. Make sure you stop in and see it. Great stained glass windows.

“Must Visit! We were pleasantly surprised by the beauty of this building.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

Amazing! You have to see this church! We enjoyed walking around the outside and taking photos. Were disappointed that we missed the inside because of service getting ready to start. We didn't go into service because we are of a different religious background and did not want to just be there as "lookers" and not worshipping.

“St John the Baptist Catholic Church”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Beautiful church. A must see! The organ was a pipe organ and the Stations of the Cross were carved statues.
