  • Such a beautiful church with the painted ceilings and stained glass windows. We were lucky enough to be able to attend a mass. The music and message were fantastic.

  • Great church all around! Could definitely use a "more youth oriented music" like instruments more than organ. Even another mass time so everyone is happy 😉 But if you like classical opera style music paired with a beautiful church, then this is your place.
  • Wonderful,kind people who have helped me in my times of need. Thank you. God bless!❤️
