We walked here from our hotel Liberty central, it took about 45 minutes. The church is a lovely impressive building--- quite a contrast from what sits around it. The church was open for people to have a look around or sit in quiet contemplation.

This is yet another great example of classic Western Cathedral. A again, not the biggest but this one does boast a fine garden off to the side. It's a great place for a breather as well. Easter Service was going on so I didn't go...More
