Our guide was very knowledgeable, and the church was beautiful. I hadn't visited in about 25 years, and was glad I went back.

You cannot see the beauty of the windows without a tour. They do a fantastic job with the tour, even though, apparently, tour guides are not paid because Petersburg is almost bankrupt. They do a great jog on the tours.

The stained glass windows--wow! Absolutely beautiful. Definately worth a detour to see the glass and hear the story of the church. The cemetery is pretty cool as well.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of this historic, fascinating church and its surrounding cemetery. The highlight, however, is the unparalleled set of Tiffany windows. One visit to this church and you'll really understand Tiffany's artistry and the beauty of his work. The staff of friendly...More
