We definitely didn't plan to go to the church, but had a few extra minutes before our tour began. We walked through the front doors and found that Mass was being said and the Priest was about to give Communion, so we didn't really go inside. It was so lovely though.

We received news of a death back home, and came here to light a candle for the deceased. The church is lovely and well maintained, with beautiful stained glass and wood carvings. Be sure to look up!

Extremely surprised by the design and colors.I love the woodwork, the vault ceiling, clean cut wall design and stain glass. Beautiful church in and out. Don't miss, its just in the walking distance of downtown.
