The architecture of the church is awe inspiring. The stonework and Tiffany stained glass windows are a thing of beauty. The history of the church was very interesting. Our tour was given by a 16 year old who was a little all over the place...More

We ventured out to tour Jim Thorpe and weren't overly thrilled with it and its haunted vibe. Touring this church along with the Packer mansion was the highlight. Everything is still as it was in the 1800's. It's very musty but beautiful. The tour guide...More

This church was a beauty on Race Street. It seemed very quaint. Did not realize there was a fee to tour or donation until we were told by the lady after helping her with the stuck doors.

The young tour guide was able to tell quite a bit about the history of the church and took us through several sections. The main sanctuary was breathtaking. No actual charge - just a donation requested. Photos were allowed!

A must-visit place, in one of the main little roads of this adorable little town! Always a visit when I am in United States. Try to find the greek words above the entrance door of the church! Feeling like home........
