The is a beautiful place to visit. It has great architecture that is very imposing. Wonderful view from Hyde Park. We often come here during lunch break to say a prayer or two. Lovely windows.

We were here in August and attended the service. The Architecture was an attraction to us. Beside the cathedral was a statue commemorating Pope John Paull II visit, designed by Fiorenzo Bacci. Dont miss that.

Just a stone throw away from Hyde Park, you will see St Mary's Cathedral. The architecture is mesmerizing. Remember to read a little history about the cathedral before your visit to get a sense of what you are looking at. Don't forget to visit the back of the cathedral for more stunning scenery. You won't be disappointed with the view and will probably go back for more photo opportunities.

We went to High Mass on Sunday in St Mary's Cathedral. Cardinal Geoge Pell was the celebrant and he was accompanied by the St Mary Cathedral choir who sang for the entire mass in Latin. What a profoundly beautiful celebration. The Cathedral itself is magnificent and huge! After mass Cardinal Pell stood outside the front doors and greeted the congregation. I heartily recommend, if you are able to, to attend the Sunday high mass.

It is one of the two big cathedrals in Sydney. I have been on an interesting tour of the crypt area. It is nicer now that the steeples/spires have finally been completed. Only a short walk/detour from Hyde Park and the centre of the city.
