  • Early on Christmas Eve, we attended the Children's Pageant and were warmly welcomed by the regular parishioners. The church was packed, the lighting of the angels near the ceiling dramatic, the music ...  more »
  • This church is absolutely beautiful. You can walk in so long as there is no service going on (unless you are staying for service of course). The architecture of this church is nothing short of amazing...  more »
  • Very beautiful church with beautiful stained glass Windows, impressive chandeliers, and a great ceiling Holzvertäfelten. From the outside, you have the feeling you enter a small monastery, because the small park that appear so probably a small cloister. Amazingly, I found that the organ in the front room of the chorus on the left was attached, and not otherwise in the back of the Church. Who a moment want to get rest from the hustle and bustle of street events, is right here. The contrast from across this Hangcock tower to this church is really blatant.

  • Beautiful church building, excellent concerts every Friday at 12:10pm, but if you're looking for solid biblical teaching, I'd recommend looking elsewhere. This location is surely a great tourist spot, though, so i definitely recommend stopping by. They have artwork all the way down the halls and take very good care of their church building.
  • An important piece of America's heritage. America's past and future.
  • We were just passing by and thought the church looked really nice and it was. A cute little church that is worth looking into.
  • Open to the public with gorgeous background music of the organ combined with the towering, Gothic pillars and archways make for an awe-inspiring time.
  • No better experience. Incredibly beautiful old church, friendly people who welcome all, sermons that will not only keep you awake but will enlighten you.
