Time to go inside the church, head up a bit and a cutscene will play with Pius. Once he is done talking, go talk to him and he will tell you he doesn't know Jasmine and the deacon will come talk to him about 'the woman'. Head outside and talk to Whitney, then go into the graveyard and interact with the darker tombstone, it will open, go inside.
Battle the guy at the end of the corridor, they have a Lv58 Kadabra and Lv58 Ampharos. The doors will now open up for the third and last doors. Head into the third door, battle the deacons along the way:

Go back to the corridor, to the third door and follow the path to the locked door inside. Insert the Blue Key and enter. Talk to the guy and he'll give you the Yellow Key. Now you can unlock the second door in the corridor. Head inside once you've done so.
Inside, talk to Sexton and he will tell you not to look behind the tombstone to the southeast. So you know what that means... time to head out and interact with the southeast tombstone from behind. It reads 'MMXIII', enter that into Jasmine's cell to free her. Go back to the room with Sexton in it, talk to him and he'll repeat what he said but now he leave as he needs to ring the church bells. Go behind his desk and grab the Ornate Key. Heal up first, then head back to Jasmine and unlock the next door.
I hope you healed up, because as soon as you enter Pius will be there. Sexton will arrive there as well, and you will fight a double battle. You will select your three pokémon and initiate the battle. They have 1: Lv60 Gallade, Lv60 Absol and Lv60 Noctowl; 2: Lv60 Gardevoir, Lv60 Milotic and Lv60 Pidgeot.

Exit the church, make sure to heal up and get ready to face the next gym.
