“Peaceful...Relaxing...Serene”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013

Popped in here on a day visit. The family was shopping down the street. It was an opportunity to take a 10 minute break and rest. In my opinion, churches are (nearly) always a great place to visit anyway.

“Foreboding exterior but decorative altar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

This Catholic Church is built quite close to the street so in that sense it is a little foreboding.

I attended 1030 Sunday Mass along with about 100 others, including a few other tourists. There was one collection not two during the Mass. The priest was Irish and gave a short homily.

The altar is highly decorated, perhaps just a little two much.

The sung hymns were very good although different from those that I sing at Mass in Melbourne, Australia.

The church is very close to the railway station and Whitby Harbour.
