Small, quaint lovely Church just a few blocks from the JFK museum. When we arrived, there was soft background music of a mens choir which made the visit to the Church quite soothing. Very moving experience.

This is a nice simple Church , It located in Hyannis and has some history to it. While the Kennedy's did attend this church ,it was only while they stayed in Hyannis. Today it is an active parish that welcomes visitors

We went to Sunday mass here and thought it a beautiful church that was simple and elegant. It was also cool that this was the church the Kennedy's attended.

The Kennedy family church. Jack's Mom, Rose, was waked here. Couldn't get near the place that day. Nor during his Presidency if he was worshiping. But you are welcome to come and join in services - please be generous when the collection plate comes around....More

This is a rather old, non ornate church. You would think that with this being the Kennedy's church where they worshipped, it would be more opulent. It also isn't that big. Lovely grounds surrounding it.
