“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Although its been sad times for the Ministry and its founder Robert Schuller for the past several years, the Cathedrals is still an amazing monument to Schuller's vision. In June the ministry will move away and the Catholic Church will begin to remodel it into Christ''s Cathedral. If you need a lift, Bobby Schuller (the grandson) is at the pulpit every Sunday offering a fantastic sermon of positive Christian thoughts and an youthful love of God.

“Beautiful Church made of glass”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

Beautiful...we were lucky and someone was there to let us in. Has been bought by the Catholic Church. Would love to experience Mass there. Should be open in the future. The history is amazing...only one in the world.

“Simpley Heavenly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

Simply heavenly! I have seen one of the most spectacular churches in post modern with the classic mix of a huge pipe organ. I could be part of the grandest impression of transparency under his roof and glass walls. A beautiful place.

“A "must see" if you like cathedrals and church sites”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

I've been to the Anaheim area several times and always return to the Crystal Cathedral. It's stunning and beautiful!. The architecture continues to amaze and the whole experience of being there is pleasing, restorative, uplifting, aesthetically delightful. I would love to be there when a Sunday service is offered. I imagine that the massive organ provides "heavenly" music (along with other musical elements plus the sermons) that would "transport" listeners during the whole worship experience. In any case, I recommend a trip to this wonderful place. If your schedule allows, check the online site for both Sunday and other programs. I'm sure they would not disappoint.

“Future Christ Cathedral”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

Our parish conducted the tour of the facility on Jan 12, 2013 and also on Jan 26. Mother and I went on Saturday, January 12 at 1 pm and we were so lucky to have perfect blue skies for the photography. Currently the facility is still known as the Crystal Cathedral as the property is not yet dedicated by the Catholic Church.
