St Peter’s Roman Catholic Church still has mass at 11:00am on Sundays.
As lovely as it is, the exterior does not prepare you for the inside. Originally designed with a pseudo-Gothic style it was last remodeled in 1896. The interior is a fanciful, Neo-Gothic style called A Celtic Fantasy.
When I first walked into the church I was speechless. All I could do was stand and stare. I finally got the nerve to sit in one of the pews and just sat there absorbing the beauty of this place. I was almost afraid to ask but the guides said I could take pictures.
Lord knows I tried but in no way did I catch half of what I felt and saw on camera.
This is the view when you first walk in under a balcony. Don’t forget you can click on the photos to see them better.
A closer look.
From another angle.
If you’ll note here, the architecture frames the artwork throughout the church.
Stain glass windows are evenly spaced in the walls on both sides of the church.
This stained glass is of Jesus. Mary is in the same arrangement on the other side.

Was it worth the climb? Oh, yes. Definitely.
