While staying in San Francisco our family decided to attend services Sunday morning at this lovely cathedral. The bus line stops nearby and we walked the remaining two blocks. The architecture of the chuch is inspiring, and once inside the attention to detail is amazing. Stained glass, woodwork, and paintings through the ages takes time to look at it all. The service started at 9:00 A.M. and was held in the east side of the cathedral as the early service only had about 100 in attendance. The pastor delivered a wonderful message, was light and easy going. Everyone was kind and very warm and welcoming. We would definately visit again.

...but suddenly (and finally) it ends and you don't want to backtrack. The church doesn't have an old world "holy" feel. It has a new world open and airy and fresh feel, like the ocean next door.

on the inside of the cathedral is a labyrinth you can walk - it's a lovely building, very peaceful. I don't happen to be Christian but I really believe that The Great Is lives here. Just lovely.

Grace Cathedral is a beautiful piece of architecture. If you are ever in the city take the time to explore Nob Hill. Take the time to capture the essence of this place with a photo.
