Stunning! The Basilica is is quite nice! After we visited we felt so peaceful! It has the most beautiful organ on the upper level and the windows were authentic to what you would expect in older days...

I would have liked to have taken photographs of the interior, but there was a service going on, and, unfortunately, I did not have time to go back

My sons, mother and father attended the Saturday evening mass - sound was great and we were well informed of hymns and where to find them. Times were great for services. It is a beautiful church and we felt very welcome.

The basilica's altar and ceiling are beautiful - not over the top as some other cathedrals - but elaborately beautiful. The German-crafted rose window is quite nice.

We visited this Basilica while we were walking the Historic Row. It is a beautiful church inside and out. It is downtown and it is a easy walk to Victoria Park and lots of places to eat.

From the marble to the huge pipe organ, to the carvings, it is truly a must see. I just wish I could have attended a mass while I was I Charlottetown. Also cannot believe the... More
