I chose to take a tour there which is $5 only. We saw the crypt and hired a meeting room. My daughters learnt many things and it was well worth the visit. After the tour, we attended Mass. It was amazing to hear all the choir and the organs. After we had a picnic lunch on the lawn outside. It... More

We were brought there by friends for Sunday mass the last time we visited and it is truly a lovely church and we were blessed with a lovely service. We were told the church had been expanded to accommodate the growing congregation. The extension is mainly glass and lets in natural light, really nice. We enjoyed this visit very much... More

a few years back the church was completely renovated inside and out, i spent a few months in the hospital across the road watching part of the reno. They spent a lot of money, but it was worth it.

The beauty of the Cathedral cannot be seen from outside. You will be attracted by the architecture, stained-glass windows and beautiful altar once you step inside. A place not only to be visited by Catholics for prayers but also by people who wish to seek a peaceful mind.

The church is near to the city center area. Love the architecture of this church. It reminds me of how big of christian community in this world is. When I went there it was still under construction on some part but still can't hide the big and the great feeling of it.

St Mary's is in neo-Gothic style, it took a long time to complete. As the Roman Catholic Cathedral for Perth, St Mary's plays a leading role in church life in Western Australia (WA). It is certainly a fine building, very different to St George's, the Anglican Cathedral, which was built out of local brick. St Mary;s windows are particularity fine..

Traditional Catholic Church but Impressive Interiors, brings out the Contemporay feels. Although the congregation is small for the attendance, however the mass we attended is universal, and we feel blessed especially walking through the Holy Door of this Church in this year of Mercy ! Amen !
