This is an impressively beautiful church on the outside. It hasn't maintained the historic look inside. I actually love their motto - a historic church for modern people. It's not a church that's just a building, it's people thriving here. As a visitor to the...More

One of the best examples of "ecclesiastical art deco' in the United States--built in the 1920s when Tulsa was a petroleum boomtown. Ample & free parking.
