Beautiful old building but not so great a worship experience. The intense echoing off the stone walls made the Mass and sermon virtually unintelligible (even with what appears to be a state-of-the-art sound system). I followed along as best I could with the Worship Aid but it was confusing at best. The experience was not helped by a screeching organ and a singing diva who couldn't hit her high notes properly. One real positive though: the congregation was a real melting pot, young and old, black and white, and I truly felt welcomed as a visitor.
I am trying out Catholic churches in Columbia and I'm finding that so far they are very stiff and stodgy. The mass I attended was led by a priest from Africa and he was virtually unintelligible. I really got nothing out of the mass becuase of the language barrier. They had a massive pipe organ that actually hurt my ears. The interior of the church is beautiful but I just didn't feel connected. The songs were all old school which I know some prefer but when I go to mass I like songs that I can connect to which is difficult with a hymn that is 200 years old. My search continues.
This is such a nice place to worship. The priest are so nice and deliver a good message. The people who worship there are so friendly and inviting. St. Peter's offers a very good atmosphere for all to come worship. They even have a bilingual mass for the spanish speaking commuunity
The church was newly renovated a couple of years ago and is absolutely beautiful. Add in the fact that everyone there is so friendly and welcoming and it becomes the perfect place to worship or even just visit to have a look!
