When visiting the capitol, we walked by to also see this historic cathedral, Construction started on this cathedral in 1887. It is architecturally interesting to see. The congregation is still very active.

They were between two weddings, so I was able to run in for a look. It is truly a beautiful cathedral. The dome ceiling and alter were quite impressive.

I jumped off the train at the Cathedral stop and happened upon a wedding party that was taking pictures outside of the groom and bride and family members.

If your in the area this is a beautiful Cathedral to stop by and see. We didn't attend Mass or anything just to a minute to stop and look and walk inside. Really beautiful!!!

Beautiful building and artistry. A feeling of spirituality can be found within. Mass is said at different times daily. There are 2 bishops who say Mass as well as other priests. It is lovely.

Always attend Mass here when in town. Beautiful Cathedral in the middle of the Capital area. Check this out even when Mass isn't being said - it is a very sacred space.

The outside of the cathedral is more interesting than the inside. Worthy of a quick visit, nothing more.

All refinished...also I believe there is an original Rafael painting in the front right section of the Cathedral, a gift from the Leland Stanford trust. Beautiful, just beautiful :)

A must to see when in Sacramento. The church is adorned with beautiful big stain glass windows. Must hear the music from the organ; magnificent acoustics.
