Reviewed 5 February 2014

This is a beautiful old church in downtown Macon. If you enjoy the detail found in old churches, put this one on your list.

“Incredible architectural gem!”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

This is one of the most awe inspiring historical structures in Macon that has been kept and restored over time. Definitely worth a trip to see and if possible attend Mass. I highly recommend this treasure!

“Solitude”
Reviewed 20 October 2013

If your looking for a peaceful place for saying a few prayers or just to meditate on a hectic trip this is the place for you. As one who likes the old style Catholic Churches instead of the newer ones which are nothing but glorified community rooms such as the one I attend it was nice to see the older churches being kept alive and well. Take a few minutes out of your busy trip and see something rare and beautiful.
