The staff are unfriendly as hell. We were trying to go for the 5pm mass, but unfortunately 4.50-ish pm is also when they're ushering the non-worshippers out as well. We were rudely shoved out the gate TWICE until I managed to get through to the...More

It is not as special as I expected it too be. Very average church, interesting background. You cannot go totally go inside anyway, free!
