Very much like cathedrals in other countries. Beautiful altar, stained glass windows. Very reverent atmosphere. Never expected something of this kind in Savannah. Absolutely stunning. A must see if you visit Savannah. We used Hop on/off Trolley. Wonderful experience.

Light and airy with exquisite art and features. Not unlike many churches in Europe. Would love to visit again and participate in a service.

Must see and the most impressive structure in Savannah. Great history and ask the volunteer to explain it.

We toured the Cathedral in the morning. It was very beautiful, with a variety of stained glass windows and murals. It is said to be known as the Sistine Chapel of the south. A must see.

Beautiful service. The organ played, the choir sang and the incense hightened the atmosphere. I can't remember the last time I attended Mass with incense. Uplifting.

There was a midnight Mass. Residents of Savannah told us that you have to arrive very early as the number of people are attending and late arrives end up standing outside for the Mass.
