  • Beautiful church. A must see for visitors.
  • I absolutely love the architectural structure of this church! Everywhere you look you see something different, whether it be on the outside or the inside. This amazing historical structure is full of energy that just brings it to life and makes you feel the history that lies deep in its walls.
  • Some very unique architecture in and out.
  • +JMJ...Giving this Church a 5 star rating, even though when I visited the Church was locked, because of its historical significance and because of the ancient style architecture. The gargoyles (now in a pitiable state of decaying) are comparable to those I have seen during visits to Italy. I met a woman a few years ago who mentioned that she and her mother were hopeful to encourage the diocese to restore this historical Church treasure to its former beauty as a house of worship and prayer. One day I'll return to Flagstaff and hope to be able to visit the interior.
  • This church is permanently closed down. Only open for local funerals or weddings. There is NO regular Holy Masses here, nor is there any persons available to open it for tours. You can attend Holy Mass at the not-far-away St Francis of Asissi Catholic church.
