This dark brick cathedral is the largest church in Oslo. it was inaugurated in 1697 . interior is richly decorated ... It is surrounded by arcades which house cafes. Baroque style interior, consists of three magnificent pieces: the altarpiece, the pulpit and the organ façade of the main organ Beautiful 19th century ceiling paintings in bright colors This cathedral is not very big but it is worth the detour. 5mn walk from the Central Station

The truth is that my "pilgrimage" is from a Norwegian town called Halden to Oslo and the St. Olav´s Catholic Church. It is much more, to me, than a well- kept museum on display. Unfortunately, for us, in relation to our real home in Heaven, churches, these days, have often become museum pieces ! St. Olav´s Church offers : Quiet (from noise pollution for those living in the center of Oslo), Silence, Peace and Refuge. As a visitor, though , from another parish, I , personally value, the knowledge that ,when the "red lamp" is lit, beside the tabernacle, then Jesus Christ , is present , there. The Godhead, Father, Son and Holy Ghost, is to me present in the house of God ! The altar is a very holy place and the decoration accumulated from its establishment, witnesses to the laborious manual work of artisans and labourers , who , in this way, have shown their love and worship of Jesus Christ . I attend the: " Celebration of the Mass" and the "Adoration of the Holy Eucharist" (in the Ciborium). These are living , unfolding worshipful acts which must be pleasing to Almighty God and rewarding to us, with GRACE, when performed with humility and respect by us, the lay folk and our representative in the form of the priests and/or bishop. The Church offers availability in all areas of the care of souls, the sacraments even , in a side bldg, hygiene/toilet facilities for travellers. St. Olav´s Church is open to believers and to non-believers and awakens love and holiness in those who take the time to view the interior and then to pray & to contemplate, His love, and how much God loves EACH soul of us; His human Creations , bought at the price of His Body and Blood. He is right in St. Olav´s, viewing us with fondness, His creatures, listening to our prayers, in this very beautiful edifice.

Norway having converted to Protestantism shortly after the Reform, has a predominance of churches that belong to the Church of Norway (Lutheran). St. Olav's is the only Catholic church and is a well-maintained, active church, with a multinational congregation of very active Catholics. We attended mass during our stay and the church was packed. The Rosary before the mass was very well attended, with very active participation of most attendants. It was built around 1856, and it houses the relics of St. Olav's arm. A baroque, rather stern exterior transforms into a warm and welcoming interior, with high Gothic arches, lovely stained windows and elaborate, but modern stations to the Cross.
