Magnificently constructed Cathedral, the stainglass, wow, work of art esp how the Cathedral was constructed inside and outside, the Cathedral is made out of sandstones which is again another thing of beauty in the eyes..

Aazing piece of achicture and spiritual feeling. My father first took me there 60 years ago when I was a child and he knotted his handkerchief in each corner so my head would be covered and I would be respectul to the Lord. I still love to visit St Marys when I go to Sydney

The cathedral is built on a grand gothic scale that would make it quite at home in Europe. It even has the small heads adorning the curlicues high on the columns in very medieval style.

Despite the people inside it was completely silent. The artificial lighting kept everything to a candle lit glow. In other churches I would have felt it reverent but in this one it felt oppressive. Mausoleum was the word that sprang to mind. I think it was becuase the statue outside of Sister Mary and the two children rather put me off. Not a single one of them is smiling.

The architecture was impressive though.

Excellent mass held at St. Mary's Cathedral in Sydney. The building housed 5000 people for mass Christmas Eve. A light show displayed on the front facing cathedral was outstanding. The architecture, stained glass and breathtaking altar was well worth the visit.
