  • Such a beautiful church that is welcoming to all people. The marble, stain glass and gold fixtures are out of this world. Visitors can sit in the pews or walk around and tour at their leisure.  more »

  • When I was in New York for the first time in 2016 we passed through the church with friends but they didn't want to go inside. For four years I couldn't erase it from my mind and I regretted for not visiting it. I don't even know why. I didn't know anything about the church before. Never heard anything of it but it seems important in some ways to me because it was the first thing I visited after I returned to New York. That never happened to me before. I spent about an hour there before they closed and I was amazed how hard work and love and dedication they put into it. It’s art. And it’s so quiet and peaceful compared to crazy Manhattan. It makes you feel safe, peaceful, honored. I am not very religious or anything but this was a special moment. So I highly recommend visiting it and try to appreciate your life. I don’t think you’ll be sorry. It’s free, photos are allowed and it’s one of the best things ever.
  • This church is incredible! My family and I came here around the holidays and we loved it! The decorations were beautiful and the church it's self was magnificent! We also loved that fact that just to poke our heads in it was free! The place was clean and the staff seemed nice as we got all our questions answered and we weren't pressured to give money! I would come back for a tour and would recommend this place to anyone Catholic or not!
