About the Event

Walk with our guide and St Gregory's artist-in-residence, Sarah Crowe,  through a 1916 colonial style Catholic church with shrines to martyrs of England and Vietnam. Explore the 1924 Norman Gothic church that incorporates masterful woodworking of early 20th century German artisans. Step inside architect Henry Schlacks 1927 French Gothic masterpiece- with it's undeniable Irish influence and broad expanse of historic events reflecting through thousands of pieces of carefully placed colored glass.

St. Gregory's Hall and Catholic Church Tours have collaborated to bring you this unique experience of the three churches in the Mary, Mother of God parishes. After the tour, attendees are invited to a light catered lunch.
