- Saint Mary’s at High Hill
- Saint Mary’s at Praha
- Saint John the Baptist at Saint John,

Our tour will include a guide as we caravan from one location to the next. With this many churches, we should expect to have approximately 45 minutes at each location. The architecture is stunning, the stained glass windows are magnificent, and the paintings and carvings should surely please. We will break for lunch at the Oak Ridge Smoke House where we will find a buffet with a large assortment of food including soup, salad, various meats, BBQ, veggies and even dessert and drinks for $12.00.
