You don't want to miss a visit to this beautiful gothic inspired cathedral. The breathtaking interior is adorned with stained glass windows that reach to the ceiling, This is a must see if you are interested in art and architecture.

The church itself is gorgeous. The stained glass exquisite so even if you just stop by to look at the Church, it’s worth it. Mass was very reverent and traditional. Will definitely attend there in the future when we are in Biloxi.

Lovely stained glass windows in this church, reminiscent of European churches. The Deacon is made my husband and I feel very welcomed for mass. You do not have to be Catholic to enjoy the beauty of this church.

You feel the serenity and spirituality when you first enter. It is a beautiful offering even if your religious beliefs are different. It is so worth the visit.

I would suggest calling the church office at (228) 374-1717. They are very nice and they can give you the correct times so you will not run into a funeral mass or some other event that would hinder your tour.
