“Easy to Find:”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

Remember that you are in a house of worship here. Please remember to be respectful of the decorum of the sanctuary even if you are not a Catholic.
As a non-Catholic, I even felt a Holy presence here. I quietly sat in a pew while I took pictures of the beautiful sanctuary. I walked up to the front of the church where a Sister was preparing the alter for something.
The churchyard was beautiful with the early spring plants coming out.
If you wish to worship; I do recommend coming here.

“Beautiful Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

You can see it from almost anywhere in Helena. Very cool to look at and explore. Open to public depending on services as its a functioning catheral. Great piece of historical achitecture. Take the time to look around and dont forget to take pictures

“Gorgeous Cathedral”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

Gothic cathedral with gorgeous interior. Attended the Baccalaureate Mass for Carroll College. Beautiful organ and good acoustics. Downside if you're there for a service: uncomfortable seats and kneelers, in some areas views can be obstructed by the marble columns. Tours available during the summer months.

“Spectacular church building”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

Somehow this cathedral escaped a 1970s "update" and remains Montana's most magnificent church building. The only blemish is the "hot tub" holy water font which must have been installed in the 80s or 90s, but it can be replaced. The windows are rich and gorgeous. The organ is a wonderful instrument. Visit this church.
