Beautiful 125 year old church, reminiscent of European churches. Has a side log cabin that the nuns originally stayed in. Good descriptions of its history.

The story of this mission is very interesting, but there isn't all that much to see here. The main church building dates from the very end of the 19th century, and the painted interior is worth investigating. The much older original Sisters' residence is nearby.

On our way to the Bison Range we took the road to Saint Ignatius to see the temple. I was impressed to see this piece of art in the middle of the hills of Montana.

This church is nestled st the foothills of the Mission Mountain range. The inside of the church is spectacular with a magnificent ceiling. The other buildings are worth visiting too as they explain the history of the place.

This mission and surrounding outbuildings located in the heart of the scenic Mission Valley are full of historical artifacts & fascinating information. Bathrooms were a bit sketchy, so go beforehand :-)

The frescoes in this church are just beautiful. If you are interested in historical churches, it is worth the visit.
