We are glad we stopped. We were able to attend the end of Sunday mass. Architecture and art is beautiful, as was the outside property. Located in a quiet neighborhood. Would have liked to have spent more time here.

I presume this is a bigger deal if you are Catholic. Even if you are not, there is much to see and enjoy here. The architecture, the windows, the old pipe organ. It's all very enjoyable.

We attended Sunday mass at 9:30 am. This church is worth coming early to walk around and look at the beautiful architecture. The parishioners are welcoming.
