“Magnificent”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

Beautiful cathedral. Volunteers very welcoming. Construction on outside, sprucing the place up but still outstanding. Inside a masterpiece, a must see.

“Amazing - fantastic choir”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

I am so glad I had the time to attend mass here on a Sunday morning. The Cathedral was undergoing renovations but the mass was still packed with people on the morning I visited. The priest was fantastic - very engaging and the choir was absolutely amazing - very professional and they sang with so much depth and intricacy. Even if you don't attend a mass, there are tours for this Cathedral and definitely worth visiting such a historic building in Savannah.

“Under reconstruction, you may still get the tour!”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

Beautiful 1860's Catholic church...amazing work inside and out. You may get a detailed tour inside the church, just ask the person at the church entrance.

“Beautiful Cathedral”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

This cathedral is a must see. The stained glass and paintings as well as the carved stations of the cross are beautiful. The church is well maintained, has friendly guides available to tell you a little about the building. Right now there is outside work being done but don't let that stop you from visiting.
