“Magnificent!”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

Impressive works of art and architecture. It was a beautiful day. The reflection of the sun from the stained glass was magnificent. We didn't know that a guided tour of the cathedral is available and so missed it. Although smaller than the Basilica in Montreal, it is equally as magnificent. Worth a visit.

“Beautiful Basilica although smaller than Expected”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

This basilica appears to be a smaller version of the Notre Dame Basilica in Montreal, and worth a visit if you have not visited the Montreal one. There is a pay parking lot in back of the church.

“See this and the Convent of the Sacred Heart”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

The Basilica is beautiful and the Convent Chapel displayed in the National Gallery of Art across the street may be seen on the same day. Both are vivid examples of how the Christian faith has inspired artistic achievement. I have seen numerous cathedrals in Europe, and they are wonderful to see because they are so old. But these two newer architectural triumphs right here in North America also show the endurance of religion in our lives. See them no matter what your own faith.
