We were there because a friend became a priest. It was an event that wasn't like anything we had been to before. The procession of priests, the laying hands, and the kiss was wonderful. Packed house for one wonderful event.

We are glad we stopped. We were able to attend the end of Sunday mass. Architecture and art is beautiful, as was the outside property. Located in a quiet neighborhood. Would have liked to have spent more time here.
