Very beautiful architect, well maintained, friendly staff even though they were cleaning up from the Christmas activities, and definitely a must see. The church has a full schedule of activities, but can be found online for scheduling purposes. Visitors are always welcome.

A very beautiful, classic cathedral. The stained glass windows are remarkable. A quiet sanctuary off of busy Broad Street.
