“Authentic Cathedral”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

This is the Cathedral for Fort Worth. The Bishop says Mass here once a month. Monsignor Pemberton is an amazing priest. If you have children, then beware that there is no cry room. Also, to go to the restroom you have to walk towards the front of the church. The exit on the left leads to the restrooms.

“Spiritual fullfilling!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

Gorgeous exterior and interior historical architecture. The many stained glass windows are breathtaking and representational of a multitude of important saints.
Parking is available everywhere around the cathedral on and off street, with some security.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

It was a really nice experience to attend mass at St Patricks. The beauty of the inside of the church is breath taking. There are many options for when you can attend mass on Saturday or Sunday.

“For the Traditional Catholic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

St Patrick is a lovely, historical church in downtown Fort Worth. The Sunday Masses offer slightly different music at each. The 11 AM Mass is usually about 1 to 1 1/4 hours long, and offers a choir. I like the music selections, but I think the choral leader is a bit over the top vibrato. When she sings the Psalm it is impossible to understand her lyric. The choir is excellent, but need to take it down a notch on the drama. It is quite glorious, but needs a dose of humility. I think Fr Mahoney is a better preacher than Fr Pemberton, in my opinion. The church appointments are traditional and serve well to the glory of God.
