It's worth a stop by even if you're not a religious person. The way the sun streams in, the peacefulness, it's very relaxing. Worth a trip to Montrose while in town.

If you have the chance to tour the University of St. Thomas, make sure you visit St. Basil's. It is very modern and quite unusual. The University itself is worth a trip, Lovely campus.
