They built a big new cathedral. I guess they had too much money and had to spend it. The modern architecture is not my taste. It's on an exquisite site along the Lake. They could have done better with this building site.

Spacious - actually vast. Sumptuous, with rich textures of wood and fabric despite the hard concrete base. Stunning in its strength of design and proportion.

We love the holy water that it's in a rotating fountain. Most beautiful church we've seen by far in the bay area.

This is a major institution along Lake Merritt and takes up a lot of real estate. Tells you how much money the Catholic Church has. It's a very modern church, quite impressive in size. Looks better at night.
