“Beautiful 100 year oak tree outside”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

A beautiful oak tree on the side of this church is worth seeing. The inside of the church is great for viewing the stained glass windows.

“Beautiful Church”

Beautiful. Tall Ceilings & stain glass; magnificent. It is a huge Church. There is a lot of room for a large group to atten services. Whether it is a wedding or funeral, the services are always beautiful.

“Beautiful church, but too much preaching”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

This is a beautiful church and graveyard. Unfortunately our tour guide was much more interested in telling us about how wonderful the catholic religion is than she was in telling us about the history of the church.

“Breathtaking”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

Had to stop to see this church better. It was truly magnificent. The Christmas lights were still on creating a most beautiful sight. I wanted a post card of this scene so badly, but all the gift shop had were regular ones of the church.

This is a beautiful old church. I loved the Christmas lights.

It was nice to see the other buildings associated with the church.
