“Beautiful--a nice quite stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

A beautiful, uncrowded place to sit down and take a breather. My toddler even enjoyed it! There is an elevator/handicapped entrance on the right side of the church, for those with strollers.

“We enjoyed many other buildings in Savannah more.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

As cathedrals go, this doesn't really stand out - pretty modern. We enjoyed many other buildings in Savannah more.
