I presume this is a bigger deal if you are Catholic. Even if you are not, there is much to see and enjoy here. The architecture, the windows, the old pipe organ. It's all very enjoyable.

We attended Sunday mass at 9:30 am. This church is worth coming early to walk around and look at the beautiful architecture. The parishioners are welcoming.

Flowers on display from various florists. Some very large. About an hour wait once you get in the door, but music and singing keeps you entertained as you admire the beautiful church. Show is the last weekend in January.

This is a beautiful church and it is a very prayerful place to visit and pray. The beautiful statues around the church have been very well kept up. The organ at the back of the church is very good and the sound is great.
