Church
“The oldest church in the city. This Catholic Church is an unbelievably wonderful place to attend mass if you're looking for a local church. People come weekly from the suburbs as well as locally to attend services here. This is the best place to attend a mass and hear a great homily. I've gone to church my entire life and can attest to this being the best place to 'get something out of it', especially if you catch Fr. Hurley's mass.”
