We attended Christmas eve service at this beautiful small church. The congregation was very welcoming; the choir very young but inspired, and the rituals fascinating to watch.

What a great find! What a refuge in the middle of midtown. Quaint church with peaceful courtyard. Very interesting connections to Actors Guild and Edwin Booth, as well as underground railroad.
