Just revel in the stained glass or fine sculptures, walk the stations of the cross, take a tour or check the schedules for 1 of the many concerts that reverberate throughout the hallowed structure. Great history that offers a peaceful break from the everyday doldrums.

Free to visit. Parking and entrance is to the left of the church. We were welcomed in and were able to take pictures in most areas. The church has been opened since 1901. If you're in the area it worth a visit.

For visiting, you can see a lot of the old Catholic church with a lot of the Post-Vatican II initiatives intertwined within. It was the home church of my Corcoran family, who moved to Covington in the 1840s, thereby holding a warm place in my...More
