Patricia,

In addition to the religious symbolism that is depicted there, I marvel at the craftsmanship it took to create it. :)

Pat,

That place is so impressive inside and out.  I was there in May for my niece's graduation from Palloti High School and the full 2 hour mass that went with it.  I have to say it took my breath away.
