  • Deacon Francis P. McGann Jr. O.F.M. unequivocally betrayed by Conventual Franciscan Father Michael Zielke. Shame on all of you.
  • Great place, beautiful church! Made it just in time for 1st Saturday. The organ music was gorgeous and the side chapels are enough to knock your socks off. Tons of relics! The Monstrance was awe inspiring and they have 24/7 adoration. There is a holocaust museum in the basement and a gift shop with lovely items for sale. I got my 100% beeswax candles for 5.99 a piece and was able to get them blessed! Finally candles for the 3 days of darkness lol bought a beautiful rosary and a childrens bible. They werent ridiculously priced like some places. The statuary and crucifix werent cheap but they never are. Me and my friend were able to walk through their Rosary grotto and pray, but we didnt do the stations of the cross like we wanted to.
