  • The oldest Catholic Church rebuilt during Comstock hay days is very well preserved and maintained. After a tour of Virginia City the church offers solitude and serenity. Sit in the historic wooden pew and admire the stained glasses and say a little prayer and pay a little respect.
  • A church this magnificent seems out of place in a rural mining community; but that is what mining tycoons paid for and got. It is a work of art in combination of stone, wood, and stained glass. Don't forget that this is a functioning parish church. Please be quiet and respectful.
  • Truly a wonderful experience. Father Anton is the best. Both knowledgeable and personable. Call ahead and ask for this fine pastor to give you a tour : )
  • An awesome 19th century church building, still in use today.
  • It was a very nice old Catholic church but they asked for donations at every turn
