I attended Mass here on the feast of the Holy Rosary. A friend of mine became a concecrated virgin living in the world. The mass was beautiful. The outside of the Cathedral is under construction. The inside is beautiful. A beautiful place to attend mass.

This is a great piece of history and a beautiful display of architecture inspired by the churches of Europe. One of the nicest churches you'll see outside of Ottawa or Montreal

Great building, history, & beautiful. After the renovations it could only be better. The artwork is lovely but the stain glass windows make it unforgettable.

I have been inside this cathedral several times; for example a son's Catholic highschool graduation and a mass for a funeral. This church is stunning outside and in. There are the stained glass windows, the sheer height of the magnificent ceiling and gorgeous acoustics. When...More
