I was so happy to have been able to attend mass. The music was heavenly. The stain glass was so beautiful.
The stations of the cross were life size. The wooden floors and the pews made me think of all the people that have attended mass.

We stepped in after a tour and were spellbound by the beauty of this cathedral. We wish we could have taken a tour of it, but spending time to pray and take pictures was just lovely. Professional camera settings are a must for the amateur photographer.

A wonderful ornate and beautiful building both inside and out. It has recently been refurbished so it sparkles.
Well worth a visit.

The stained glass windows are breath taking. The stillness and quiet was felt by all. It will be worth you while to stop to see this church.

If you've travelled around Europe and have seen the great cathedrals there then you might be a little weary to stop in but this jewel ranks with some of the best I've seen. It is free of charge but donations are accepted and used for its upkeep. There is a sign on the far right door along the front side that invites you in or reminds you whenever the church is in use.
