The wood and stain glass was amazing. They were in the midst of doing lightening renovations. We were still able to see a lot of the church even through the scaffolding. Wonderful gentleman was able to talk to us about the church.

Large, impressive. Huge columns inside with lots of religious paintings and symbols. Nice and quiet which recorded organ music in the background.

We went here and love the architecture of this building. The stain glass and they have little presentation to tell the history of the building and they have a person there for any question. Lovely building to visit. Would recommend.
