Beautiful church and beautiful liturgy.

Great parish to celebrate Mass with. Stop across the street at the Knights of Columbus hall for a great supper too!

I love older historical churches. This one tops the list. We were there on a Saturday right after their service. What an auster & beautiful sanctuary. I loved the stained glass windows and the blue ceiling. What a lovely church to visit. If you love old churches this is a gem.

Nice church, the place was huge. Choir was great . We hope to attend again when we are in ND. Brick churches are the best.

This church is worth a quick stop. The stained glass windows are beautiful with images from the Bible.

We made the detour into Jamestown to view this old church and it was amazing. The inside of it just took your breath away, from the beautifully carved pews to the high vaulted ceiling to the beautiful stained glass windows.

Nice home town church, good homily, good vibe. Beautiful church! Everyone seemed very friendly, the music was good, and it was exactly an hour long service. :-)

Diversity Management: "means the pursuing of an inclusive culture in which new comers feel welcome". The Basilica fails in this area. The Basilica itself is a beautiful piece of architecture and I guess worth looking at in that regard. However the "family" housed in this house of God are a poor excuse for religious leaders and congregational family. I have... More

The stain glass windows were just redone and they're just lovely. Everyone we met in the Basilica were so friendly and willing to answer questions.
