We visited the cathedral in early April 2014 and found it beautiful! Enjoyed an organ course for two students: striking! Do go, meditate and enjoy!

You'll feel like you're in a European cathedral when you walk inside. Very beautiful and powerful and well worth the walk.

I was staying at the Embassy Suites Hotel across the street and decided to tour the church. Great experience! I have been to Philly many many times and to the Embassy Suites at least a dozen times but never took the time. DON'T MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE. It is well worth a visit.
