Saint Stephen's Episcopal Church

Attend services at this English decorated style church. Built in 1862 in open fields, the stone building is now in the center of Brown University located on the East Side of Providence. A peaceful country church feeling pervades the atmosphere of this gothic Middle Age structure. Music of the liturgy drifts into the high alcoves of Our Lady's Chapel. The Chapel affords east and west views, a reminder of parish diversity at St. Stephens. Daily Services, small weddings and funerals are held in the Chapel.

First Unitarian Church

Destroyed once by fire and rebuilt in the 19th century, this striking pale stone and wood edifice attracts visitors strolling historic Benefit Street. The Gothic-looking spire rises tall above this corner of College Hill, with its handsome black-faced clock, and the church bells can be heard tolling through a portion of the East Side. The services at the First Unitarian Church start on Sundays from 10.30am.

St Peter & Paul Cathedral

In 1837, the cathedral was established with the celebration of the first Mass. It is the mother church of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Providence. The structure is made from brown sandstone and is a standing example of architectural brilliance. Inside the church, green marble is extensively used. Oil paintings and statues form an integral part of this church. The stained glass windows, depicting scenes from testaments, take you back in time. It also has the largest organ featuring 6,616 pipes.

First Baptist Church in America

The First Baptist Church in America is quite literally the primogenitor of all the subsequent congregations across the nation for this particular denomination of Protestantism. It was constructed in 1775 and like many other buildings in College Hill, it played a significant part in the development of both Colonial America as well as Providence. The church was also the impetus behind Brown University and its relocation from nearby Warren in 1770 (even though the building did not exist, the clerical bureaucracy still had considerable clout). In fact, the university still holds undergraduate commencement ceremonies inside the church's Meeting Hall every Fall. It was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1966 and today its open to the public for services on Sunday as well as more tourist-oriented visits during the week.

Touro Synagogue

Dedicated in 1763, Touro Synogogue is America's oldest synagogue. Descendants of Sephardim from Spain and Portugal seeking freedom from persecution founded the congregation in 1658. Peter Harrison, a known colonial architect, designed the synagogue. It is one of the best examples of 18th-century architecture in America. Friday services are held in the synagogue at 6p in winter, and 7p in summer. Saturday services are at 8:45a. Tours are conducted every half-hour Monday through Friday; in winter, tours are Friday at 1p and Sunday from 11a-3p. Donations accepted.

St. Mary's Church

St. Mary's Church is a favorite stop for Newport visitors. Established on April 8, 1828, it is the oldest Roman Catholic parish in Rhode Island. The church was designed by Architect Patrick C. Keeley of Brooklyn, New York and was designated a National Historic Shrine on November 24, 1968. It is a quaint stone church of second period Gothic design, and perhaps most famous as the wedding location of Jacqueline Bouvier to John Fitzgerald Kennedy on September 12, 1953. It is closed to visitors on holidays.
