Owner description: A Newport church where George Washington once attended.
Reviewed June 17, 2013

This is a must.One of the oldest churches in America.
George Washington prayed at this church.
Allow time for the tour...the church has many many antiques that are used in the services.
If you are there on a Sunday,attend services.I am not of this faith,but enjoyed attending and worshipping with the church members.

The spire dominates the skyline as you as cross the bridge to approach Newport; it is a beautiful, graceful sight on a summer evening. Inside, the church is steeped in history, particularly from the Colonial / Revolutionary era. Well worth spending some time .

This church is not open for a look inside unless you call ahead - 401 847-4794. We didn't know that so we were unable to gain entrance. Parking is on the street. The graves surrounding the church are pretty much the same as the other old graves sites we have seen in New England. We were there mid-April which is "off season" for the area. It may be different at other times, but if you really want to see this church inside you'd better call and check.

You need an appt to get into the church so we walked the grounds and read all of the old grave stones~ many from the late 1700's...its all pretty but sombering

This is the oldest Catholic parish in RI and where JFK married Jackie. The architecture is a gothic like style. Make sure you go during the hours they are open so you can enjoy the stained glass windows.
