Old St. Patrick's Church reviews
This was the first time we attended mass here, as my daughter's group was meeting here before leaving for their mission trip. It's a beautiful church, very ornate Celtic details, gorgeous stained glass and mosaics. Very welcoming. Parking is free for masses in the lot one block North of the church. Their choir was also really good. Highly recommend!
Catholism for a modern society. They have a large membership with many faith-based programs, community outreach, and social activities for all ages and groups. The church and members are active in many inter-faith programs, charity, and philanthropic endeavors. People, clergy, and staff show great respect and acceptance for people of all walks and faiths. The Sunday choir is top notch. Holiday masses almost feel like great concerts and Sunday mass they uplift the spirits with great complement to the scripture and rituals. Plus let's not forget about the world's largest block party every summer!
