  • Architecturally, a modernist, sad building, which inside and outside doesn’t convey that this is a Catholic Church. Inside, there’s no permanently installed crucifix, just a Protestant cross. At least there are statues of the Blessed Virgin Mary and St. Joseph and the tabernacle is present behind the altar.
  • Filled with interesting history. Well kept.
