“Peaceful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Visited January 2005. Simply beautiful inside. Bought a few reasonably priced souvenirs in the little shop ran by local parishioners, which I still have. Spend a moment in there, no matter what your faith ( or non-faith) and let your spirit rest.

“A Blessing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

A Blessing. This is the first church that I visited when I arrived to the country from London. I went there to pray and I got the job I prayed for. Amen

“Having work done at the moment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

there was quite a bit of noise going on, and red tape around certain areas, but on the whole worth a visit.

“A beautiful Sunday mass”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

It took until my fourth visit to NYC to actually attend a Sunday church service at St Patrick's Cathedral. Upon entering, I had no idea just how beautiful and large it was. The statues and marble and the underground tombs make this place truly spectacular. You just feel at peace when you are inside here.
