Beautiful Architecture

Stopped by here when I was in downtown Phoenix. This is an amazing church that has wonderful architecture and is just over 100 years old. Check it out.

This church is amazingly beautiful and worth the visit. Right down the street from the Rosson House (also worth the visit).

On our walk back from a museum we came across the Basilica. It took our breath away! We walked through the park and also visited the gift shop. This was a great addition to our walk.

Daily noon Mass at the Basilica in downtown Phoenix is always a prayerful pleasure. Beautiful music is always played, but if you're trying to get away for lunch, it doesn't take more than the lunch hour.

I was in town with my wife and had a lot of time on my hands while she attended a convention. I found myself drawn back to St. Mary's a number of times. The basilica is beautiful. Although we...

Visiting Phoenix and attended the vigil mass here. The church has quite a history in its 100 years serving the people of Phoenix. Visited by Pope John Paul 2 in the 80s. Nice bronze statue in the adjacent park. Beautiful architecture and furnishings. Stunning stained glass and alter.

My partner and I returned to St. Mary's Basillica this Easter to attend the "Children's Mass" at 11 am. WHY?
