As a Catholic, I LOVE this church! But most of my friends who went with me are not Catholic-yet they all loved the beauty of this Cathedral! A must-see when in Savannah.

We visited the church before the morning services and it was very beautiful. I am not Catholic, but I still found the atmosphere to be a blessing and if you enjoy stain glassed windows... you are in for a treat.

Part of Savannah's beauty, history and charm. Rivals the great cathedrals of Europe in art and architecture.

The cathedral was under construction, but was still very impressive. It towers above the city. We plan to come back when renovations are finished.

The church was undergoing renovations outside, but we were still able to go inside. The pipe organ is huge and I'd love to hear it being played. We were allowed to quietly photograph the interior.
