    Very Nice Cathedral in the heart of Tucson!
    I stopped in quickly due to a mass in progress and I wanted to respect the parishioners. This cathedral has a beautiful ceiling, main altar and two side altars that are beautiful as well. The stained glass windows are also beautiful. Located in downtown Tucson it is worth a stop. It is not as ornate as St. Xavier Mission so if you can only go to one of the two, St. Xavier is a better choice. My friend and his wife who live in Tucson go the the Mariachi Mass at this cathedral and they love it. The cathedral is very nice and worth the visit as part of your Tucson experience.

    Historic
    Old church which started in 1776, though most of the church was built relatively recently. Entry has well known early church characters painted around, starting with Augustine. At the far left end there is a pictorial legend of each. The cathedral is very long with an arched roof its length with inset tiles. ~8-10’ tall portrait stained glass window insets in sides, each worth a steady gaze. Partook in a Christmas Eve day mass. Pomp and incense.

    Stunning Architectural Gem
    The Saint Augustine Cathedral is a stunning architectural gem. Its intricate design and elegant style create a breathtaking atmosphere that is both awe-inspiring and serene. The cathedral is named after Saint Augustine, the son of Saint Monica, both of whom are significant figures in Christian history. Saint Augustine, known for his influential writings and conversion to Christianity, played a pivotal role in shaping Western Christianity and philosophy. A must-visit for anyone appreciating historical beauty and spiritual tranquility.

When we are in Tucson, we always drop in here for a moment of silent and retreat from our daily business. It is a lovely place to recharge and refuel the soul. Visit this place .. take int eh quiet take in the peace and enjoy the elegant beauty of the building itself.

Nice old church that has been recently restored on the exterior. We were unable to go inside except for a peek due to a funeral service in progress.
Unfortunately they are doing construction on a huge living complex across the street. It would have been nice to see it left in its original setting.

Really impressive church that had a ground up restoration and opened in 1968. St. Augustine is Roman Catholic Church.

St. Augustine Cathedral is well worth a stop if visiting Downtown Tucson. It is lovely to look at inside and outside. The Spanish Colonial Revival exterior features a sandstone facade that displays a saguaro, yucca, horned lizard and various local cacti.The structure also displays a pair of truncated towers.

Inside, the entrance room shows off a nicely done mural design that depicts important figures to the church. An information sign that identifies the depictions stands to the far left when entering the room. The bright cheerful interior makes me feel welcome. The vaulted ceiling has recessed lighting that shines down to further foster illumination. Stained glass windows in mint condition add color to the muted walls. I think the piece de resistance is the crucifix from Spain behind the altar. At least 600 years old, the crucifix is 17 feet high and weighs 2000 pounds.

There is free parking for 15 minutes in front of the cathedral on South Stone Avenue and metered parking nearby.

Wow what a find. This place is a landmark example on a wonderful church, the murals in the interior and the stained glass make this place inspiring and worthy of a stop to see and pray a bit if you want. The Sunday schedule even has a service with mariachis on one time slot. too Cool. The beauty and art make these southwestern churches a constant stop in my travels.

This past weekend I needed to be in Tucson early in the morning. So I opted to attend Sunday mass in Tucson as well. I read that St. Augustine has a weekly Sunday mass in Spanish along with a mariachi band. What a wonderful experience! Even though I do not speak Spanish (unless you consider 2 years of classes in high school 40 years ago), I was able to follow along the songs and prayers with the Spanish/English missalette that the Cathedral provided......with the exception of the priest's homily. In addition to the wonderful music by the mariachi band, including a fabulous version of Ave Maria, another highlight of the service was the inclusion of about 8 participants dressed as 16th century soldiers for the procession into and out of the church. I will definitely return here again! And I recommend it highly for anyone looking to attend Sunday mass in Tucson!

Well maintained Cathedral Church of the Catholic Diocese of Tucson. Were blessed to meet the Bishop after Mass. Stop in to say a prayer on your visit here.

I have been to Tucson a handful of times however never been able to attend mass until this weekend. The cathedral has a very beautiful interior decor, we especially loved the rendition of Our Lady of Guadalupe and the choir area mural of Jesus. We are member's of the Basilica in Minneapolis and love our church but this Cathedral is very unique and a treasure for the residents of Tucson, AZ.

Ample parking available...
