We were welcomed into the church by Mary who loves this wonderful example of 1850's affluence. It was breathtaking. The windows alone would be worth your time, some are Tiffany, Amazing. The wood work is all hand carved and it has the original Otis elevator in working condition-another piece of artwork. children should see what pride people use to take... More

Did not go inside, but the stone exterior and stained glassed windows are beautiful. An excellent example of older architecture.

The parisheners also attending were some of the most welcoming group that we have ever met. After mass we spent time with them in there social hall.... More

Though I knew this church was a National Historic Landmark, I didn't plan to visit. As my friends and I walked by, the doors were open inviting us to stop in.

Visited here specifically to view the Windows by Tiffany and La Farge studios. Wow! They are fantastic as was the rest of the church! A passionate tour with a lot of evident pride. I was blown away! Don't skip this great American treasure!

We were lucky enough to find the door open, they were expecting a church tour and one of the members was nice enough to show us around. Gorgeous church but heard they are falling behind and may actually be closing. Such a shame

We decided to tour this church on a whim after walking by and are very happy that we did. We were given a tour by a high school student/church member who was very knowledgable. The church was beautiful and featured 2 Tiffany stained glass windows. Riding in the 1911 elevator was also a treat! I would recommended this to visitors... More
