This was a nice stop in a busy day. Beautifully decorated and a nice respite from walking to just sit and think awhile.

You feel peace and tranquility as soon as you enter this Catholic Church. The stain glass is absolutely breathtaking. The architecture is stunning! I would estimate 30 minutes to an hour to take it all in.

This church is a treasure. From the marble altar to the wooden pews to the majestic marble pillars extending to the arched ceilings. This is the finest Catholic Church that we have visited .

Their nativity scene is the town and not just the stable. You have so much to view and it is very peaceful. Everyone was very respectful of the fact we were in a house of worship. It is worth the stop to visit this chruch.

Make time to visit this beautiful church. The architecture is amazing. Make sure you are respectful and do not try to visit during church Mass times on the weekends or during the week. They will not allow you to enter the church during Mass times...More

There was a midnight Mass. Residents of Savannah told us that you have to arrive very early as the number of people are attending and late arrives end up standing outside for the Mass.
