Owner description: Summer church of the Kennedy's
Reviewed June 26, 2013

Our tour bus stopped here for 30 minutes. The Kennedys relationship to this church was explained as well as the meaning of the altar symbols were explained. Unless some one gives this explanation, you will be disappointed, as this is a small, unpretenious church. There are many photos of the Kennedys, as well as Arnold and Maria's wedding, which was held in this church.

Went to service their.Pastor did a great job. Beautiful unpretentious church that Rose & Joe Kennedy went to with their family. This is where she and her son had their memorials as well as president John Kennedy 's son Patrick. A must see.

Although the blizzard of 2013 hit the cape pretty strong, the church was open and Sunday Mass went on as usual. No heat inside but electricity was on

What a beautiful Church, it's truly stunning, inside and out. It is also the Kennedy Family's favored Church when in Hyannis, and there is a pew with their nameplate in the front rows, where they sit. The services are beautiful, and old fashioned, and the atmosphere is very old school.
