  • Lovely, peaceful welcoming church. Often call in here just to sit and ponder. Looking forward to the carol service on December 15th.  more »
  • I visited this one afternoon and then returned on Sunday morning for the early 'said' Mass. The people were very friendly and the Church is lovely. Well worth a stop to look at it and see the organ!  more »

  • Nice church you can make a donation for the upkeep whilst you are inside.
  • Lonely old people live here where church provides houses. They support each others. Nice day visiting of a historical place in Ruthin.
