This church is right across the Holiday Inn River Walk. We attended Mass there the Sunday of our departure. Look for the sculpture in front of the church of the "Homeless Jesus" it will get you thinking.

It is nice to be able to attend mass while on vacation. This church had a marvelous 8:00 morning service, beautiful music & a terrific priest. Easy location right on the riverwalk & many mass times. Beautiful inside.

I don't know, but the bulletin is posted outside the church and the rectory is on the grounds about 100 feet from the church entrance. Sorry, I can't help.

I didn't see any steps in front but I believe ther is access in the back. This is a beautiful old church. I suggest you phone them.
