“Gorgeous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

I like to visit churches around the world and this one is gorgeous! The windows are high quality art and the atmosphere is very calming. I recommend a stop in, sit awhile, say a prayer and make a donation...

“Quite Stunning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

This is a beautiful basilica in the middle of downtown Phoenix. The stained class and high cathedral ceilings are spectacular. It's amazing how quite this place is, a great place to gather your thoughts and get away from it all. The park/walkway next door with the fountain and the murals are so relaxing.

“Mother Theresa beatification”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Every year the Albanian community organizes a nice memorial for mother Theresa at the very spiritual St.Mary's Basilica. The architecture and the service do right to the name.
