Colmes & Perry, 1924
Founded in 1904 as a German/Luxembourger parish, St. Gregory the Great is a Norman Gothic gem from the 1920s with a lavishly-decorated ceiling, hidden chapels and a permanently-installed Nativity scene that can be concealed when not needed. The pulpit, shrines and Stations of the Cross were hand-carved in Germany, and the windows are made of English and jewel glass. See oil paintings, organs and many other beautiful details throughout the large sanctuary and its two chapels.
Visitors are welcome to roam freely. Docents and staff will be present to answer any questions. Guests may also visit the Chapel of Our Lady of Consolation on the second floor off the main sanctuary. It is a sacred space within the sacred space, created over 15 years and dedicated to families who have lost children.
