Although we are not Catholic, We thoroughly enjoyed visiting this historic sight. It was a breath taking sight to behold. The building had such beautiful detail. The only regret is that we didn't sing a song as the acoustics were amazing!

This is a mid size church with small church atmosphere. Friendly place to go to worship the Lord. The people will make you feel welcome.

A great church, a beautiful place to pray, meditate, or ponder the stations of the cross. The most spiritual place in the town, in my opinion.

This church is so beautiful and I'm so glad they have maintained it for future generations. The historic beauty of the building is complemented by such a friendly and welcoming congregation.
