  • The Altar of Relics was a beautiful place to spend some quiet time in contemplation. It helps me appreciate and love my Catholic faith even more knowing we are part of the communion of saints. St Elizabeth Ann Seton as patron saint of widows holds a special place in my widowed heart.
  • A Worthy Place to visit your Lord and Savior.
