We went to Sunday mass here and thought it a beautiful church that was simple and elegant. It was also cool that this was the church the Kennedy's attended.

This is a rather old, non ornate church. You would think that with this being the Kennedy's church where they worshipped, it would be more opulent. It also isn't that big. Lovely grounds surrounding it.
