“Absolutely beautiful church, brings tears to my eyes.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

I loved the ornate stained glass, painted ceilings, walls and pulpit. Absolutely breathtaking. The church feels like the Sistine chapel. Cannot believe such an amazing piece of architecture is located in the Midwest.

“Beautifully renovated in 2012”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

This cathedral was restored in 2012. Painters from Eastern Europe were selected to do the restoration. If you are here near Christmas, you are in for a treat. There is a 4-day "Christmas at the Cathedral" production which features a nationally-known tenor and soprano, portions of the South Dakota Symphony, and a professional choir that combine for a magnificent production. The production runs Thursday thru Sunday the week prior to Christmas; this year it will be 19-22 December. There are six or seven performances. Tours are also given on a regular basis.

“Beautiful place to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

When we were at Falls Park a lady on a bicycle stopped to talk to us and told us not to miss this and told us how to get here (she was a Benedictine Nun we learned during our conversation). I'm so glad she told us about this. So peaceful and what a beautiful Cathedral. Take a few minutes and visit here.
