Beautiful Past

This church was amazing. It is so rich in culture and history you can just feel it. The walls are exquisitely painted and the musuem and gift shop are awsome.

A very worthwhile visit and surprised at the size and tours available which was most informative. Walt did a great job. Great value candles in souvenir glasses too at 3 dollars.

Beautiful Historic Site

Beautiful historic building. Still an active church. Worth visiting but doesn’t take long, unless you want to stop and pray.
