  • Beautiful church! They are extremely nice in there and answer any questions the random traveler has. Added bonus: live jazz music every Thursday. A very relaxed environment.
  • 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.
  • A historic church amidst a bustling city. Step inside and reflect upon the history and charm of this welcoming respite.
  • 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.
