  • The church was absolutely beautiful, but what took my breath away was the area. I could not believe the beautiful views we stumbled upon while riding through on a bike. We took a pitstop here and, let me tell ya, it was hard to leave the attached bookstore!!! We were surprised of their quality selection and very affordable prices. I want to go back one day, but a stack of books, and read them while I picnic and enjoy the rolling green hills. You have to stop by their cafe to buy yourself a snack; everyone who worked there at the time were very pleasant!
  • I personally loved the architecture design and artwork there. It's the closest thing to a cathedral in the area. And right across the street and directly behind are miles of great Trail
  • This church takes your breath away the minute you walk inside. There's so much detail in all the architecture of the building both inside and out… is astounding! It's a nice place to visit when you're on your walk through Valley Forge park.
  • My girlfriend and I went to see fireworks here on the Fourth of July. There was a local celebration in King of Prussia we attended that we had a very good time at. We came here and there was fireworks going off in many surrounding areas that you could see and being there gave us a very historic feeling...
  • A wonderful Cathedral. Faiths of all kinds are welcome at this wonderful place of worship and remembrance.
