Ranked as one of the ten largest in the United States when it was completed in 1959, St. Cecilia's is the archdiocesan parish in Omaha. The beautiful high ceilings and artwork are magnificent. Every January, the art council produces a fantastic flower show with florists from all over the city creating fanciful displays according to a theme.

I have grown up in the shadow of this marvelous building. It is the closest think Omaha has to the great cathedrals of Europe. Don't miss the small chapel on the left side of the alter.

I have been to this cathedral twice but neither time has been when they have had the flower festival. Would love to go next time they have it. The cathedral is gorgeous alone, can't imagine what it's like during the festival.

Like seeing the great cathedrals of Europe without any language translations required. The art in the stained glass window and murals throughout are amazing!
