  • The architecture of the temple is impressive when seen by your side. To your dome is visible in many parts of the city, it's almost a guidepost for who's passing through town. The interior isn't as opulent as numerous other churches. There are several statues of Saints with subtitles etched on the wall telling you about their lives. Unfortunately, the recording on St. Benedict, the "Holy black and poor" was partially erased, as if someone had rubbed off on purpose. If that happened, it's unfortunate, because the prejudice have invaded even this sacred site.

  • Very pretty, but I think that the diocese should help those homeless people who just sit in front of the Church ... is painful!
