This church sits on a corner in Monument Circle. The outside of the building is beautiful. It's pretty inside as well. The wood beams are impressive. It's worth walking in and spending a few moments.

I love old churches. I loved this old church. It is small, but it is gorgeous. Located in the Monument Circle, it really stands out. It was gorgeous inside and out, day and night. Check it out.

A nice serene get away. Extremely quiet when I went, giving you a chance to look at all the architecture in detail. Beautiful stained glass windows.

Beautiful old Episcopal Church located on Monument Circle that truly has an old English feel to it architecturally. This was one of the three Episcopal churches that Eli Lilly heavily endowed almost 50 years ago. It is worth a visit.

Beautiful inside, outside and surrounding. Outdoor library and Sailor and Sailor monument viewable from church steps. We went to the first service, were we unknowingly went to the music-less service. The second service has organ music. There was a free breakfast after church for All Saints Day celebration.
