The acoustics were amazing. We loved singing with others. Also, the area is peaceful and full of things to see. The Bethesda pools are nearby and other churches.

This church with the amazing acoustics is the traditional home of Anne, mother of the Virgin Mary. It is also home of the Pool of Bethesda, where Jesus healed. The setting is so very peaceful in a very noisy quarter of the city.
