The gargoyle looks like the one from the original Ghostbusters! Awesome looking structure mixed in a modern city. Just up the block from Fords Theater worth a look.

We did not get to stay but for 5 minutes because they were closing up at 3 pm. We very quickly looked around. The church is gorgeous! I wish we had more time to enjoy.

St. Patrick's Church is the oldest parish in Washington, D.C. It is beautiful and has an organ that resonates throughout the church. We visited last week and enjoyed mass in this gem near the National Mall. A great place to celebrate mass when visiting D.C.
