A proper asymmetrical gothic church appropriate for the first Catholic church in the city. Unlike the other churches in town, the bell tower is on the right, on the corner of its lot. Its steeple is much sharper than the flat-topped affairs put together for some of the other churches in town. It's hard to reach out to God when you've limited yourself.

Notes
  • The stained glass windows are by Zettler Studios in Munich, Germany.

  Outstanding structure. Makes one want to stop and gaze at the bell tower and stone work.
