St Mary's Cathedral will take your breath away - it is a daring departure from the traditional Catholic church. First, it is huge - it seats 2400 people. It was dedicated in 1971. Yea, Vatican Council.
Called a "spiritual oasis" - the interior rises 19 stories high! Faceted glass windows representing the Four Basic Elements form a cross at the apex... My very favorite piece is the stunningly beautiful Baldachino - flickering in the light and wind over the huge marble altar..which weighs a ton! (Both the altar and the Baldachino weigh a ton) Yes, we met a darling docent who gave us a mini tour. Free Parking. Donations welcomed.
