Dubbed the "The Little Cathedral of the Bronx," this neo-Gothic style church was designed by Henry Vaughan and features Tiffany glass windows, a 1927 stained-glass window depicting Jane Addams and Booker T. Washington, a 70-year-old Skinner pipe organ, and terra-cotta altarpieces that are the only known work of renowned English ceramic artist George Tinworth in the United States.

Visitors will enter the sanctuary through the gates on Kingsbridge Avenue. There is a ramp that does not meet all of the criteria of ADA compliance, but does provide access for many mobility-assistance devices. The approach to the Church (and ramp) are gravel and wooden decking.

The church organist will perform on the historic Skinner organ at 12pm and 4pm. Guided tours of the church, including the bell tower and undercroft, will be conducted upon request.
