“A truly beautiful church”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

Like seeing the great cathedrals of Europe without any language translations required. The art in the stained glass window and murals throughout are amazing!

“Great Stop in Omaha”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

Beautiful Catholic Cathedral worth a stop. Situated on one of the highest spots in Omaha, the cathedral is stunning. It faces West (away from downtown) and the façade is best viewed in the afternoon. There is street parking and two small lots in front of the Cathedral.

“Saintly surroundings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

This is a gorgeous cathedral with a wonderful sounding organ. There are plenty of Mass times to choose from. It is located in a wonderful old neighborhood easily accessible from Dodge Street. Sermon was to the point and not too long.

“Beautiful Architecture, really amazing space”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

This italian-iberian inspired Roman Catholic cathedral is a grand space, a wonderland of masonry and mosaic, it is definitely an oasis of calm. the cathedral also has a really beautiful mechanical action pipe organ built by Martin Pasi, which has been featured on the American Public Media radio show Pipedreams.

Huge doom and nice music.
Interesting architecture style.
