  • A beautiful church with an extremely friendly and welcoming parish. We were on vacation, so chose this church by proximity. It was the best choice we could have possibly made.

  • There are many catholic churches near me. This one is an additional 20 minute drive from my location, but well worth the extra time. The church is beautiful, and the music is excellent. The priests and parishioners are very friendly. I always feel at peace here. I would highly recommend this church to anyone.
