Stopped in here as part of my walking tour and really enjoyed it. It might not be quite as elaborate or fancy as some of the churches in Europe, but it's still well worth a visit.

I' m sorry I don't know the answer to your question. I just happened to pass by this church and saw the door opened so I excitedly visited it. Perhaps you could see if they have a website that could help you. Good luck!
