  • I just don't know where to begin. As soon as you get out of your car you can feel the peace and serenity surrounding you. The grounds are magnificent and the church itself could not be more beautiful. We stopped in the shop and were met by Father Peter who remembered we had been there last year.

If you are in the area it would benefit you to stop in and visit.
