St Patrick Church is spectacular to see. The rich history, including a fire that nearly destroyed it, is very interesting. The recently restored, one of a kind life-size Stations of the Cross are not to be missed. Along with the magnificent pipe organ and the...More

Even if you are not Catholic, this building has amazing architecture and was modernized a few years ago, and now I would describe it as breath taking. The life size stations of the cross are hand carved in wood... priceless to see.

This is a basilica style church that is quite charming. There are lots of classical basilica architectural features. Some interesting plaques. Interesting history.

We did not visit Presque Isle on a Sunday. For this reason, we also did not attend the Church's Sunday Services. But we did go to visit the Church to feel its warmth and see its beauty.
