Due to alleged construction work in the square in front of the church, the entire square is boarded off, which really harms the view of the church. Beyond that, many windows are broken in the church. All of this combined just makes it really unattractive....More

Visited on Christmas Eve for mud morning service. Excellent service in the beautiful building which is very near the town centre and easy to get to on foot. We'll worth attending for some simple peace and reflection.

A pretty church and clearly an important site. The rafters are full of bats and they poop....Also, if you stop for a second you will be approached for a donation to the "grounds keeper". I don't mind helping out, but being approached makes me uncomfortable.

This church is in the process of being resorted but it is still very beautiful old catholic church. Definitely worth the visit

Mass at the Church of the Assumption was a special experience. The deep faith of the parishioners was evident throughout the 2+ hour service. A worshipper graciously shared her hymnal and mass book with us since you must bring your own.

What a joy to attend Mass at this beautiful church filled with even more lovely people. Everyone made us feel so welcome, even sharing a missal and songbook with us. The Mass was so joyous and spirited, from the music and singing to the homily....More

A cool oasis in a hot busy city. Unusual décor and detailing. Absolutely in the centre of town, easy to find but if you have a car then park in the multi-storey at the north of the market

Sunday morning Mass is at 8:30 A.M. It is somewhat more formal than many Catholic services in the USA, with, for example, the servers all wearing cassocks and surplices and incense used to honor the altar, the Gospel book, the priest and the congregation, as...More
