As far as local churches go, this is one of the oldest. I have attended mass there for decades and it feels as an old cathedral should.

I have not worshiped at St. Paul's but was there to hear the Highland Consort (acapella Renaissance vocal group). The beautiful sanctuary with amazing acoustics was perfect for this performance. A lovely spot for musical performances.

Love taking a load off and visit to take in the atmosphere and glorious quiet. On the other hand visiting when the choir or organ are playing is a real treat.

Beautiful church. Worth stopping in just to see the floor and ceiling, but the rest is great too. Please be respectful of worshippers
