This smaller cathedral has more human dimensions than the mega-cathedrals of Europe, and was built to a unified plan, directed by the Bishop in the early 1900's with the generous support of Helena's Roman Catholic community, both very rich and labourers.

This is an absolutely beautiful piece of architecture. The stained glass windows are wonderful as is the ceiling and furnishings of the interior. No problem parking and visiting.

The Cathedral was a short walking distance from Sanders B&B. The lovely stained glass windows and the architecture alone is well worth seeing!

I love architecture and old churches, so this was a great stop for me. It is a really beautiful church in a not very beautiful area. I think it is worth at least a drive-by.

Beautiful and awe inspiring cathedral. Hard to fathom that the early settlers in Helena had the means to build such a large and elegant church.

We were unable to take the tour. It is a beautiful cathedral. We were enchanted when we drove up to see it and found the front of it lit by the late afternoon setting sun. Absolutely beautiful.

The Cathedral is definitely worth visiting and it is free! The building is gorgeous inside with lost of gold leafing and an enormous pipe organ. The doors were open so people could just walk inside. It is hard to believe that city as small as Helena would have such an impressive church. It is comparable to Saint Louis Cathedral in... More
