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.
