Lovely and peaceful. I loved the Polish icon and the story about the Franciscan friar that has been leading the congregation for 30 years!

We’ve been to this Catholic Church several times in the past. It has a strong Spanish feel to it which adds, I think, to its overall charm and serenity. It is a lovely place to spend a little time in His presence.

Don't miss this church if walking around Rye - it is free to enter and is very peaceful with a beautiful marble alter and pulpit with an Italianate feel to it.

This small Catholic Church sits between a row of houses and you quite easy walk past it. As we approached the door a priest appeared from nowhere and welcomed us. Everything about the church is small and that is why it is so special. I...More
