The path to this church is up the stone steps between the buildings on High Street. Be careful as the stones are of irregular shape and depth. Once you get to the top, however, the church is beautiful and well worth the effort. The white...More

This church is beautiful, unfortunately we could not get inside. Very picturesque. It does require the ability to walk up hill so wear comfortable shoes.

Very picturesque little church perched on a steep hill with a little courtyard in front providing scenic overlooks of the town. Steep single lane road with no pull-off area is the only way to get here by car, otherwise those who attend must be in...More

Unique historic church beautifully decorated with ornate stained glass and woodwork. The organ on the balcony is breathtaking! Got a history lesson in regard to the statue of Jesus on the cross by a local reenactor.

A mass is celebrated every Sunday weather permitting at 11AM. This is the time you can visit. The outside architecture is magnificent

It's part of the attractions of Harpers Ferry, people definitely walk around the grounds and take in the view as far as if the church is open and having any services I am unaware.
