  • Beautiful church caught me eye as I walked by and went in for a service very welcoming . Has a gift shop which I did not visit but would definitely return next time I’m in the area.  more »
  • I was looking for something to do around Madison Square Garden. This church is beautiful! The staff was welcoming and it was a nice, air conditioned place to admire and say a few prayers.  more »

  • Very beautiful yet odd experience. Went in with my baby & husband yet no one answered any of the open doors..nor was anyone there! I ended up changing my baby on the piano bench
  • Visited St. John the Baptist on Holy Thursday as part of the seven Churches pilgrimage and totally loved the prayerful atmosphere that pervades this space. Each church has its own vibration and here it was nourishing and unpretentious. When you visit check out the Stations of the Cross, I particularly liked how they were vibrant statues.
