The exterior is in the beautiful gothic style. The streets around the cathedral are paved with red brick making the church stand out even more. The interior has gorgeous wall-to-wall stained glass windows and large mosaic Station of the Cross scenes.

Beautiful works by Frank Duvenack in the style of the old masters and lovely stained glass can be found here. Well worth a visit for art lovers.

Took about 90 minutes out of the day to visit this beautiful church and very glad I did! Located in Covington, this is a great place to view artworks - stain glass windows galore (82 of them!), intricate Italian mosaic scenes, paintings (some Duvenek), an unbelievable organ (I believe there are two) - simply beauty throughout every inch of this...

One of the most beautiful churches in North America. The stain glass windows are spectacular. It is modeled after Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris.

The window in the transept is simply magnificent and well worth a visit as well as the Duveneck paintings in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel. Although the recent renovation are not in keeping with the gothic architecture, it is still a beautiful place.

This cathedral is on the Kentucky side of the river, in the Kentucky diocese, and far worth a visit. It is more beautiful than the cathedral in downtown Cincinnati. The outside is like a mini Notre Dame. The mosaic stations of the cross are unbelievable. Pick up the small pamphlet from the table that explains what you are looking at.
