“Beautiful Stained Glass Windows”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

The church was renovated in 2012. All the interior was done over, cleaned up and repaired. Each Christmas they have "Christmas at the Cathedral" with wonderful music and singing. It is broadcast on TV nationwide. There are tours available to explain the different features in the church...a wonderful treasure!

“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.
