Wonderful choir, soloists and organist treated us to a splendid hour long concert of Christmas music and supported us during the Mass which followed.

Beautiful, historical and placed in DT Vancouver. It offers amazing architecture and glass windows that are just amazing. Free entry and you do not need to come for a mass.

Cathedral is just average considering the size of the city. Went there for Sunday mass and the service and sermon where also average. OK place but not a special place to visit except if you are in the area and want to attend a service
