A beautiful and unusual church built right in the middle of a development with houses, schools, stores, shops, lakes, grocery and a very highly regarded university. The ultra high ceilings in the church seem like kind of a waste of space and don't give very...More

The architecture is amazing and was open to visit and pray during the day. A few people were praying in the pews when we entered. The tabernacle was beautiful, surrounded by the statues of the Saints and Apostles. We also enjoyed the serenity of praying...More
