The Franciscan church has a spectacular stained glass window-God the Creator, by Wispanski. Also there is a side chapel with a replica of the Shroud of Turin and a sarcophagus with the relics of Blessed Angela Salagwa.

I liked it because it has the seat of Pope John Paul II marked where he would come for his morning prayer time (and I'm not Catholic). Just a nice, quiet place to touch history.....

We were lucky enough to enter this church just before closing, and to see the amazing stained glass window when the sun was shining upon it and bringing all the breathtaking colours and beauty to life. Not to be missed.

It is worth visiting this church for the stained glass windows but it felt quite dark when inside, even with the decor inside the church is very intricate and colourful paintings.
