Fodor's Review

This building was consecrated as a parish church in 1848, and serves as the seat of the territory's Roman Catholic diocese. The ceiling and walls are covered with a 11 murals depicting biblical scenes; they were painted in 1899 by two Belgian artists, Father Leo Servais and Brother Ildephonsus. The marble altar and walls were added in the 1960s. A $2 million restoration project completed in 2015 includes over a dozen statues of handcrafted saints representing the many nationalities of the congregants who worship here.
