The craftsmanship that went into building this place of worship is amazing. You can see no use of nails or rebar in this structure. It provides a peaceful spot to relax while touring all else.

It's an airy well maintained stained glass church. We were lucky to see a local wedding. It is hard to believe that it's over a hundred years old. It was close to town and easy to locate.

Whether one is Catholic or not this old wooden church is worth seeing. Given the destruction during the battle of KonTom glad it was not destroyed and has been maintained.
