Beautiful church. Attend mass if you can. Spent time admiring the church before mass as we arrived early. Then they turned the lights on. Even more majestic.

This is probably the most beautiful church in the city. Architecture. Wonderful paintings. Walter. Very traditional. We were married here and still frequently attend even though we belong to another Parrish. Frequent times of mass, confession. Excellent priest with wonderful sermons.
