Tried to visit the inside of the church, but no hours were posted and it was locked up right at 12 noon on a Saturday. The outside of the church was beautiful, fairytale like.

Walked to St. Malachy’s Cathedral, lit candles and took pics of the stunning ceiling. Mass was about to start so we paid our respects and were in awe of the gorgeous ceiling.
