The church also features a life-size marble casting of Michelangelo's Pietà. The work of art is one of only 100 Pietà statues that the Vatican Observatory Foundation has authorized and licensed.

Other features include an outdoor prayer garden, encompassed by iron gates and featuring a 72" statue of St. Michael.

Father Steve LeBlanc says he welcomes anyone and everyone to his church.

"We'd like to encourage not only those from other Catholic parishes, but our fellow brothers and sisters from other religious denominations as well," LeBlanc said.
