The main and side altars are spectacular. You got to check out the beautiful statue of St Joseph in the front of the church.

I grew up in Sioux Falls so was quite familiar with the Cathedral but it will always remain an inspiration to me.

Highly recommended. I suggest taking the guided tour Monday through Friday at 1 PM. The church is absolutely stunning. No expense was spared in the renovation of this church that is over a century old. the attention to detail is very apparent.

We usually don't visit churches but we read about this and had some spare time. We are so glad that we visited this attraction. I say attraction because it is a site to see. Beautiful church which you can see in the cityscape of this town. Great sculptures and stained glass. It is huge. Take time to see this as... More

This is a beautiful old church and parsonage that shows the amazing talent of our forefathers in design and architectural feats of greatness. They truly put forth their best efforts when designing this cathedral and the grounds that surround it deserve a stroll to enjoy the beauty of the floral elements incorporated in the nearby gardens.

It was an impressive building but then again, aren't most such buildings? We've seen more impressive structures & less impressive structures thus rating this an average site.

The steeples of this catherdral stand out on the horizon as you approach Sioux Falls. This is an impressive, massive limestone structure on a hill overlooking the business district. We only drove by. Can't imagine how beautiful it must be on the inside. The adjoining neigborhood is the historical district that has several huge, beautiful historic homes that are well... More

After reading TripAdvisor reviews on Sioux Falls, I decided to stop at this lovely cathedral. It is a awesome lovely church. The stained glass windows are all very unique and interesting to stop and look at each one. This a a great place to visit.

This cathedral is beautiful inside the renovation really made it look nice yet preserved the original parts. I love how in this cathedral its so big but it still has a warmth to it that makes you feel almost at home. The couple times I have gone to mass here the congregation seems welcoming and friendly I'm sure they are... More
