It took me a few tries to get inside, having to attend the end of a mass to do so, but it was worth it. The head of the church has three amazing murals, with a nice stained glass dome at the top. Everyone inside was very nice and didn't mind me taking pictures. If staying in the convention center... More

This was the most beautiful mass I have ever been to. The chanting, the reverence, and the message was a perfect way to start a Sunday!

My husband and I were able to sneak a peek at this beautiful landmark after Good Friday services ended. What a gem. This place has been very well taken care of. The stained glass above the high alter is breathtaking. I would recommend a visit.

We passed by in the late afternoon and it was closed. The next day we passed by earlier and went in for the noon mass. WOW!

We walked to Saint Patrick's on a rainy Saturday afternoon and were not disappointed. The cathedral is small but incredibly detailed and a great example of the gothic style. We snuck in between services so didn't stay too long, but there is plenty to view from a seat in the pew. Worth the walk if you like cathedrals, stained glass,... More

The ceiling and stained glass are beautiful. Many wonderful features to see; don’t go when Mass is being held because they ask you to not take pictures then. Check the schedule before you go.

Location is interesting. Right in a business district. Beautiful church with a European feel. Stained glass windows are awesome. Eight o'clock Mass felt rushed with no music but I loved the homily. If you are in town and want to attend Mass, definitely go to St. Patricks.

Not Catholic - but love this church and the message from the pulpit is always good and worth the visit. Plus the beauty of the sanctuary makes you feel like you are closer to God.
