You feel the serenity and spirituality when you first enter. It is a beautiful offering even if your religious beliefs are different. It is so worth the visit.

This is an old Catholic Church; I believe the Basilica of the diocese. Soaring ceilings with beautiful dark carved woodwork overshadowed by gorgeous jewel toned stained glass windows.I am looking forward to attending Mass there.

We attended the 7am Mass while visiting Biloxi. The church is only a couple blocks off the beach and an easy walk. Very friendly church with wonderful stained glass windows.

By far, this cathedral is incredible. We showed up and the doors were locked. We walked around and found a locked gate and Jenny (a worker) was inside the gate. We told her we were from Chicago and she unlocked the gates and the cathedral and gave us a private tour. My twins are completely different and 1 of them... More

This is the Cathedral so the stained glass windows, architecture, alter, and statues are all beautiful. There is an excellent organist and very good choir which is usually at the 11:00 am Mass. Organist is at most masses.

This church is in the downtown area and while it is a smaller church, it was well attended at the 4 pm Saturday mass. My wife and I felt very welcomed there and we will return in the future.
