I came here for the 9 a.m. Sunday mass while staying in Hamilton. The basilica is quite beautiful, with many ornate stained glass windows. According to the church bulletin, it's open to the public on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays during July and August from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. I definitely recommend it for anyone who is in Hamilton, whether...

This Cathedral is typical of what you find in the United Kingdom. I used it as a sample for photos before my first trip to England

Visited this on Sunday for the 11am mass. Beautiful old-style church even it's built in 1933. A nice place for quite time with God and inspiration.

I have been to the Cathedral at least once a year for the last thirty years. I have seen many high school graduation ceremonies, a wedding, Handel's Messiah and the relics of St. Therese. I am always awestruck and inspired by the Gothic architecture. I inevitably end up staring up for most of my visits. You will know what I... More

We have gone for service many times. We love their Christmas midnight service. We always take our visitors for out of Town and visitors form out of the country, You are missing out if you don't visit this beautiful Cathedral and see what Hamilton can offer you.

Beautiful design and very peaceful. Can't miss it-right by the 403 Highway. Cootes Paradise and the Hamilton Bay feature nature areas.

The Cathedral of Christ the King is a beautiful historic building in the old fashion style. We attend Mass here occasionally and love coming to see this gorgeous Church built up on a hill overlooking part of Hamilton. The grounds are beautiful and the steps up to the Church are impressive as is the building itself with carvings, statues and... More

I made my first visit to this Church for a wedding, the church is very amazing, beautiful stained glasses inside the church.Church is located nearby a highway and eass to find the place.The only concern is that they don't like taking pictures during the wedding mass. It is worth visiting this church.

Our family decided to take in Sunday mass here. We were in awe of the spectacular cathedral. The mass just happened to have a special guest speaker. We loved the experience. The organ was unbelievable. The cantor had a wonderful voice. There was no problem hearing the mass in this huge building. You will be impresses by the numerous stained... More
