We visited St. Anthony's on a Sunday morning, just planning on popping in to see the church. It was so spectacular we decided to stay for a mass, and were lucky enough to be there when the bishop was. Beautiful church, definitely worth seeing.

We stopped here because this was my grandfathers church many years ago. It's a beautiful church and a short drive from the whaling attractions down the street.

Our first apartment was across the street, that was 45 years ago. While we were not Catholic at the time, the church was so beautiful, the steeple standing out along the city horizon.

St Anthony's is a massive church that is beautiful to visit. Over the school year they offer a monthly concert played on their classic organ, free with a "free-will offering."

One of the most beautiful churches I have ever seen! I have been to many of the older churches in the US and Europe. Highly recommend visiting this one.
