Description

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.

Visitor Experience

View the main church and two chapels on the second floor. Docents will be on hand to answer questions.
