“A beautiful church..... well attended mass..... great participation even in the singing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2014

I attended a 7 a.m. mass on the morning AFTER the clocks changed.... couldn't believe how well attended the mass was.... It was wonderful just to look around at the beauty of the building, but the service was very homey and charming....

“Lovely”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2014

This cathedral provides a peaceful moment for tourists of any faith. It is well maintained, with beautiful side altars. The income derived from lighting a devotional candle ($5/small candle) goes towards preservation of the site - and it shows!
