I attended the Easter Service + communion and realized that we have only been in the USA for a few years. This old church is pre-dating the discovery of America by many centuries.

The church has a light, airy interior with some nice stained glass. At regular intervals during the week there are free organ recitals in the afternoon, lasting about half an hour.
