Church
“St. Mary’s Church, In addition to its official services, hosted a number of society weddings. In 1871, Colonel Jerome Napoleon Bonaparte, grandnephew of the Emperor of France, married Caroline LeRoy Edgar, a granddaughter of Daniel Webster. Perhaps the most famous and poignant wedding took place on September 12, 1953 when Jacqueline Lee Bouvier was married to then-Senator John Fitzgerald Kennedy (later the 35th President) at St. Mary's Church, Newport. Over the three years that Kennedy held office, when he and the First Lady spent weekends in Newport, they attended Sunday Mass at St. Mary's Church. They always sat in pew #10. St. Mary’s Church is on the NATIONAL REGISTER OF HISTORIC PLACES.”

Event Space
“If you want to look at beautiful fresco paintings but can’t afford a trip to Europe, you could instead travel to Woonsocket and see the largest collection in North America. The former Catholic Church was built in 1913 to serve the local French-Canadian community, but it was closed in 2000. Today, it’s now a non-profit organization and open for weddings, concerts, tours, and other events. However, the biggest draw is the main chapel area, with the walls and ceilings covered with beautiful hand-painted artwork that features over 475 faces of angels, saints, and other forms of divinity. Coming here is like seeing the Sistine Chapel and discovering a true hidden treasure.”
