This is a rather old, non ornate church. You would think that with this being the Kennedy's church where they worshipped, it would be more opulent. It also isn't that big. Lovely grounds surrounding it.

This is the church that JFK and his family usually attended when on the Cape. They were part of the community. The current altar was donated as a tribute to JFK and the Kennedy family. It is only a few blocks from the JFK museum.
