This is so very beautiful and it made me emotional! The pictures do not do this beautiful place justice, you have to see for yourself.

Very beautiful church. There was a guide answering questions who was a member and loved his church well!! We got the Sunday mass times and attended Palm Sunday. I was surprised that the service had no singing. It was very interesting, my husband liked the lack of music. It was very well attended and the celebrants were easy to understand.

This cathedral is a must see, spectacular sight of savannah. The detailing is out of this world! With a renovation just completed last year. The 10:00 mass on Sunday also has a choir that sings beautifully.
