Over a century old, and just a few blocks from temple square. The building is traditionally ornate... lots to see inside and out. Caught a Sunday 6PM mass. Beautiful and well done. This church has real and loud bells. They chimed before the Mass began and also chimed on the quarter hours.

Saturday Mass in a beautiful setting at the Cathedral provided an opportunity for a devout experience. The outstanding beauty of the Cathedral was humbling, and the welcoming nature of the community and the pastor made this visitor feel welcome, while allowing for peaceful worship.

Beautiful architecture. If you have a day or half in Salt Lake City, do visit the cathedral along with Salt Lake Temple which is in the vicinity.

It is a very nice building with a lot of detail put into it. See it before temple square, because it doesn't hold a candle to it. Worth seeing though.

If you get "all-Mormoned-out," this place can provide the antidote. Just down the street from Temple Square, this is a beautiful cathedral. The outside seems Gothic, complete with gargoyles. The inside features some artistic surprises in its brightly-colored columns, and a series of stylized Stations of the Cross paintings with nature themes. Well worth a visit.

This cathedral is breath taking inside and out. The stained glass windows are amazing. The frescos are beautiful. The arched ceilings are awesome. While I was there, the organist was practicing and filled the cathedral with the most heavenly music. This is a "must see" in Salt Lake City.

Don't overlook this gem, and please consider donating if you like what you see / hear. I was there and heard an organ recital and was stunned by the incredible acoustics...and the beautiful stained glass, too.

Definitely visit when the children are giving concerts. The Opera Concerts bring in Utah Opera people and they are wonderful. The children singing along with them have angel voices and the setting sets the stage. Proud parents fill the pews so you must come early to get a seat. During the holidays the concerts are beautiful. A wonderful set of... More

Wonderful mass at this beautiful cathedral. The choir was outstanding and the mass suitably reverent. You can take guided tours but, at the end of the service, I enjoyed just walking around looking at the wonderful building while listening to the superb post Due on the organ.
