We thought we'd wander in and enjoy this building for a bit and ended up with a thoroughly mind-blowing tour by the young man on his way studying the organ at Memorial. The history of the imagery, structure, organ and artifacts were all enthusiastically and thoroughly presented, and he left us wowed by the cathedral and the community that has invested so much in it's preservation. It was beautiful inside and out. Thank you very much, and kudos to the docent who looked after us so well!

Another historic building with beautiful stained glass windows. Welcome maintained and still in use. The original pump organ is still on display.

We went there on a Saturday as the Basilica was closed. We walked in and were greeted by two lovely people and the priest. They offered to tell us all about the place. Since my partner and I have slightly different tolerance to tours, we decided to pick up their written guide and walk around ourselves (and yes, she was done in 5 minutes whereas I took a half hour). The written guide explains everything well. I only wish it was in colour as the photocopied black and white pictures were difficult to ascertain. Beautiful building and great stained glass windows. Truly a gem.

We attended a church service at the cathedral and stayed after for a short tour. The music from their pipe organ was fantastic. We were then invited to stay for coffee and treats and visited with the amazingly friendly people from this church. It was a great start to our first day in Newfoundland!
