from the facade to the inside of this church, everything was beautifully done.. the only downfall of this church is the boise coming from the behicles outside.. it can be a little disturbing during the mass.. other than that, it was beautiful!

Located in the city, it is convenient to get to by walking. When I attended the Mass there, the person leading the singing had a beautiful voice.
