Long Description:
In the year 2010 Calvary Episcopal Church celebrated their 150th anniversary. The church building was built in 1862, just 8 years after the city of Rochester was founded.

Today the "little brick church" stands across the street from the world famous Mayo Clinic, amongst the hustle and bustle of downtown Rochester. It truly is a "spiritual oasis", a nice peaceful spot in the heart of the city.
