When you park the at you see the wonder. The steps of the building are amazing. You walk up to some handcart wooden doors...as the doors open your eyes are in awww. This building becomes alive and the rooms takes you in. Matter if you are Catholic or not you feel the presence of something higher than one's self. Wow.... More

If you haven't had a chance to be inside an "old world" cathedral, take the chance. It is interesting, easily accessed with no waiting line, and it is free. It harkens back to a time when no detail was too small when it came to the "Lord's House." You can wander the main floor at your leisure. For a while,... More

Love to attend Mass there in the morning and Sunday when I'm in town. So much History, love to just go and sit and look at all the beautiful statues and to pray the stations there.

What an amazing edifice of Roman Catholic architectural expression. Lived across the street from this building in the 1990s & watched them begin the renovation of the roof and the exterior – continually impressed with the attention to detail and quality of renovation taking place. Opinion: Even tough our air pollution will probably never return the roof's original green patina... More

There is so much to see inside and to learn the history of this place is pretty cool. It was a joy to celebrate Mass here and to see the reverence people have for... More

While in town my wife and I visited the St Paul cathedral and enjoyed mass there. The first impression is one of awesome size. You can see it is huge from the outside, and the impression continues as you enter. The interior is quite ornate as well. I really like the beautiful stain glass windows. The altar is also attractive.... More
