I attended mass with family who were visiting and am so glad to have had the opportunity to visit this beautiful cathedral. The interior is stunning. I would like to return when I can spend time looking at each stained glass window. This church is filled with light. Acoustics were good, but the choir was sparse the day we attended.... More

My husband and I are not Catholic but we did walk in and visit during a mass and it was very nice. The building is historic and beautiful.

Be respectful. But don't miss the beauty of the interior. Which is barely rivaled by the 1800's era, architecturally stunning exterior.

Beautiful Catholic Cathedral! The only issue around the Cathedral is that there is limited parking. A lot of homeless people and beggars also hang around outside.

We attended a Saturday vigil mass here and were warmly welcomed, but there are a lot of homeless around who also wander in for mass. The music as beautiful as is the church itself.

Had to come for an event and was amazed at the architecture and the decor inside. It's like no other cathedral or church I've ever seen, if you're nearby, definitely take a few minutes and stop by.

The gorgeous piece of round stained glass is certainly a focal point. The interior has been redone within the last few years and it is worth the trip to see. Downstairs could use some updating, but the upstairs is peaceful and serene.

The doors are open to all at the Cathedral of Madeline whose patron saint is Mary Magdalene. The cathedral was completed in 1909 and is on the Registry of Historic Places. Gargoyles and beautiful stained glass add to the beauty of it's Neo-Romanesque exterior design. You will also find a plaque honoring it's first bishop Lawrence Scanlon. The Neo-Gothic interior...

Just make sure to get there early so you get a good seat. Though most of the up front seats are saved for church members! Also, plan ahead for parking.
