Located at 38th and Park, this church is straight across the avenue from the Kitano hotel. A beautiful exterior is matched by a wonderful interior design. The stained glass is magnificent and the ceilings are amazing. The church is modern )built in 1955) and light, with good acoustics. There is a 5:00 pm mass on Saturdays and on Sundays, there...

This once glorious church now looks like a Walmart. The lighting is harsh and uninviting, and worse - the beautiful icons have been removed. Skip this parish until a new pastor is appointed.

The Christmas Concert was outstanding. It was the right place to go visit around the Christmas holiday. My wife and I met some new friends and found a great church !

This Church was one of the most beautiful in Manhattan. I used to stop in here to pray. Apparently the famous icons are now gone. Why in hell would someone think this is even a remotely good idea?

This church was once the spiritual center of Manhattan, perhaps the entire New York metro area. Fr. George Rutler's preaching evoked the best of John Henry Newman, and Ronald Knox. His additions to the church include beautiful icons by artist Ken Woo and handsome bust of Newman. Alas, since Fr. Rutler was transferred to another parish, the liturgy has suffered... More

The best way to describe the 11:00 Sunday Mass complete with choir is to say, "exquisite". The attention to detail with regard to the Mass itself is flawless. The visual experience to be had in this glorious church takes one's breath away and the extraordinary musical direction complete with choir isn't to be had elsewhere in any of the churches... More

Father Rutler was the outstanding pastor of this Church & in a bizzare decision by Cardinal Dolan (scourge of Traditional Priests) a politically correct crony named Robinson was gifted Our Saviour. Avoid this one! St. Agnes, a very fine Church is located ten minutes away. If its Father Rutler & his wise, witty, erudite, Holy Spirit driven homilies you seek... More

The church was right across the street from our hotel and was very convenient for us. As we walked in we were greeted with a spectacular interior that echoed with the sounds of the mass. We were even asked to bring up the offeratory!

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
