  • Beautiful church with nice details. Stained glass windows and the columns inside especially nice. Also obviously a living place of worship and no museum.
  • Marvelous church. Here you can find God and feel the Holy Spirit. You can listen to an amazing talented young organist and a nice soulful priest. Nice, good people create great places for us.
