Amazingly beautiful stain glass throughout. The alter was so touching. The socially distancing was very well done. We were so pleased to be here. Amazing church and tribute to Our Lady.

Beautiful Cathedral
Nov 2019
This is only about a half hour south of Cincinnati and is a beautiful Cathedral. Soft filtered light enters through the stained glass windows and adds to the spiritual feel. Well worth a stop.

This church took my breath away
Oct 2019
Parking couldn't have been easier as there is a parking lot right next to the building. I walked in and the beauty took my breath away. The details of the building are amazing. I will go again next time I'm in the area.

Found a Gem
Oct 2019
We didn't know that this Cathedral was here in Covington, KY. It is a beautiful replica of Notre Dame with it's own personality stained glass windows and mosaics that make it a great place to spend an hour or so.

AWESOME

I have traveled the world and have seen many churches. This Basilica ranks up there with the major cathedrals of Europe. The stained glass windows are exceptional. I have never seem more in any church. Be prepared to be awestruck.

Wonderful Tour!

I set up a tour for our church widow's group. We all thought it was a beautiful place and the tour was wonderful. We spent an hour looking at the beauty and hearing the history. Thank you!

A TRESUER FOR THE ART LOVER

Since one can no longer visit Notre Dame in Paris, France, this is the next best cathedral to visit. The stain glass window is magnificent. They do not build churches like this anymore. Our tour guide was very knowkledgable.

One of the Highlights of our Vacation
Jul 2019
On our visit to Covington last month, we visited St. Mary's Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption. When I contacted the visitors bureau, the cathedral was highly recommended. We planned to take the self guided tour, but when we arrived, a tour had just begun. The guide who I assumed was a deacon, invited us to join the group. He provided a lot of information regarding the architecture, stained glass, and history of the cathedral. Guided tours are only offered to groups of ten or more, so I appreciated being invited to join the tour.

The stained glass is breathtaking as is the Gothic architecture. The cathedral was modeled after the Notre Dame cathedral in France. If you can't go to France, I highly recommend visiting St. Mary's.

Breathtaking!
Jul 2019 • Couples
This church is absolutely gorgeous. It is modeled after Notre Dame and another famous church in France. It was amazing to see the architecture and all the details of this church. The stained glass is beautiful and seeing this church in person is a real treat! Definitely a hidden gem in Kentucky! Go see it, you won’t be sorry!
