This place is a page out of historic Rome. I couldn't believe it. You must go see this church. It is simply gorgeous. I could have stayed there for hours reflecting. We went around Christmas and it was decorated and just lovely.

We have been to the Basilica on more than one occasion. The most recent was to hear the St. Henry High School Chamber Choir perform. The experience was beautiful and it stirred my soul to be there in a Church that was built for music and praise. The architecture is spectacular and the historic stained glass windows depicted the early... More

Really a very holy and spiritual place. Terrific stained glass and just seems like an old world Cathedral.

This facility is gorgeous! We sing here while the stained glass colors stream across the sanctuary. Well worth a visit.

This is a replica of Notre Dame in Paris. It of course is not as big, as old, or as grand as the actual Notre Dame but it is still one of the most beautiful structures in this area. It stands out in Covington and is a beautiful wedding venue.

We got married at the Cathedral in 1975! Quite a spectacular place. The organ & stained glass windows are worth the trip.

Easy to get to, easy to park, no entry fee, only thing I'd like to see changed - a map on the information brochure - sometimes I was not quite sure if I was looking at the right item for the description especially not being that religious and not knowing who is who.

The Cathedral of Diocese of Covington is awe-inspiring. Walk in this sacred space and you will instantly feel the peace and serenity of God. The Gothic architecture draws your eyes heaven-ward and the stained glass windows tell the story of the Gospels. The window in the northern transept is the largest hand made stained glass window in the world. You... More

Always such an impressive place and with a great view. I love to watch the people praying on the steps on Good Friday. The weather doesn't matter.
