I visited several times before the Catholic Church bought it. It is an an iconic building that you should see. It is prettier outside than inside. I really enjoyed when they did pageants here, Easter and Christmas.

This place is definitely a sight to behold. It’s been bought by a church but the architecture and everything around it is so beautiful. Might be under construction though

Attended a wedding there. Very pretty and romantic. They were accommodating to my catholic friend (the bride) to have the statue of St. Mary placed at the altar for the ceremony.

This is a beautiful Catholic Church. It will have 9 distinguished places once completed. Main building is still under construction and expected to be completed in 2019. Afterward it will be very nice to visit.
