But even if you don't want to go in for a prayer, it is worthwhile to visit this church with nice decorated windows. A visit offers also a moment of silence and cooling in the heat of the day.

My sisters and I stopped by St Paul's church right after touring the Richmond Capitol. Wow! The stained glass windows are simple gorgeous! It was fun finding the places (pews) where famous people from history sat.

A historic structure right in the heart of the city only steps from the Virginia Capitol grounds, St. Paul's is a nice way to spend some time meditating on it's history and beautiful Tiffany stained glass windows. Worth the time, and could be done in conjunction with the Capitol tour.

Beautiful, stunning historical church in the middle of downtown Richmond. Very welcoming congregation. Relevant homily. Great, moving experience.

This Church has seen a lot of history! Jefferson Davis and Robert E Lee are only two of the numerous famous attendees. Douglas Wilder, our first African-American Governor, had his pre-inaugural prayer service here. While not all of the stained glass windows are Tiffany, many are - and they are beautiful! I think 3 or 4 windows are from Monumental... More

The outside of the church is beautiful and sits cross form another church and the park. It has some beautiful artwork and architectural elements. A great spot to visit if you have a few spare minutes.

Jefferson Davis was in attendance for a Sunday morning service when one of his aides came in to tell him he must evacuate Richmond. The church is a terrific community resource; they allow people who live on the street inside to take showers. They have hosted several programs in conjunction with Richmond's Journey.
