Hamilton's Big Cathedral

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.

I've been to this cathedral several times and am taken aback each visit by its' beauty which is only enhanced when incense is used during mass. There are plenty of pews that are very comfortable and have built in speakers to aid the acoustics. There are also flat screen monitors throughout so that nothing is missed. I don't know her...

The Cathedral is one the nicest Churches I have ever visited in the Hamilton district. The workmanship to the outside structure is absolutely amazing. Once inside you are captured by the craftsmanship of artistic construction and beauty at it's best. A perfect place of worship.

In my opinion, this is one of the most beautiful places in hamilton. It's an absolutely majestic church, tucked away, just off of king street. Definitely worth a visit if just to stand on the stairs or the romeo and juliette style balconies.

What a beautiful church! It is amazing to see how large this place really is when you first walk into it. I think it is one of Canada's finest churches. The location is right off the highway and whether you are Catholic or not - you just have to come here...you will be awestruck at its beauty.
