Reviewed July 31, 2012

We attended a wedding here. It was beautiful. The organ was extraordinary. The stained glass cover all the walls and make it a reason to visit.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

Was in town for a event and was looking for some sights to see this was a beautiful church. Says its a 1/3 scale of the Notre Dame in France. Also the largest hand blown stained glass window in the world. This has to be one of the most beautiful churchs I have ever seen well worth the trip to see it. There was plenty of parking and very helpful people inside to answer any questions.

“Gothic beauty in Covington”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

The Cathedral in Covington is a real gem - architectural beauty as is seen in Europe with fantastic stained glass windows that are truly exquisite. Be sure to get the book describing the windows at the entry desk (the entry on the parking lot side of the church).

“Beautiful Basilica”
Reviewed July 7, 2012

If you're ever passing through Covington, the Basilica is well worth a brief visit. Impressive stained glass windows and tile mosaics, and the baptismal font is really lovely.
