Paulish Fathers have one main Mother church and it is known as Church of St Paul the Apostle. Its first cornerstone was laid in 1876. The church was in a way the brainchild of Father Hecker who hoped to combine the present day mentality with olden times culture, faith and belief. Jeremiah O'Rourke, the initial architect was guided by him in terms of the kind of design that this church was to possess as Father Hecker had specially gone and studied European Churches to make something similar.

The church is 114 feet to the highest point, 121 feet wide, 284 feet long and is inspired by 4th and 5th century Basilicas in Italy. The history of the church is very fascinating and the architecture is even more magnificent. You must witness the beauty for yourself to experience its description completely.

  • I enjoy this sanctuary. It's often a spiritual rest stop for me. Special place. Small, but nice gift shop where you can buy vigil candles.

  • Welcoming and no discrimination. Priests are available after mass! They also have a room for kids so parents can listen to mass while caring for the kids

  • Beautiful Church. Very calm and serene. The presence of The Holy Spirit is strong. The staff is very kind and welcoming. Just a lovely church overall.

  • This church is extremely beautiful and every time I have randomly walked in I felt an instant peace and everytime I would walk out I always felt like a new person. Holy water is available as soon as you walk in which is always nice to have.

  • An outstanding Church right next to an excellent University, both surrounded by breathtaking plazas. Once inside, the Church is astonishing. Clean, organized and enormous. Simply a must for tourist and residents alike.
