Beautiful cathedral, beautiful Masses. We both attended Mass on the vigil of Corpus Christi 2012, and I returned by myself on Sunday for Mass and to participate in the Eucharistic procession. Even with the scaffolding around the building, it was still beautiful. Only complaints are 1) that we could not enter the church for prayer much before the vigil started... More

St. Mary's is a small but beautiful cathedral. The doors are always open and there are restrooms in the basement. The architecture is fantastic and mass there was very nice.

Unlike the cathedrals of Europe and eastern United States, this one was built at he end of the 19th century as a parish church for the small city of Austin. It shows in the smaller size and greater simplicity of this space, which is a nice departure from the grand spaces and gilded churches found elsewhere.

This is a beautiful place to stop if you are visiting downtown. The cathedral is restored and is simply beautiful. There is a gift shop, too! This should just be a place to stop on your tour of downtown Austin. (ie it doesn't take all day to see it all!) It's an easy walk to many great lunch places such... More

Anyone who has ever visited A great cathedral anywhere in the world will arrive at the same conclusion. This is the prettiest catholic church/only cathedral in Austin. Don't make a trip of it unless you're seeking an exorcism or a change of church scenery.
