  • The Cathedeal of the Immaculate Conception in Fort Wayne IN is a hidden gem within the city. From the architect on the outside, immaculate campus to its intricate beauty of the magnificent stain glass windows where they mix both past and present in the windows! When I have the opportunity to attend the weekend mass I'm never disappointed! The choirs are top notch! Speaking of choirs, this place packs the house with its community wide Good Friday Mass where all Faith's takes time out from work to commemorate the Passion of Christ and then celebrate with a simple soup lunch at the nearby St. Mary's Soup kitchen. I am never disappointed with this place, I feel at peace within its walls!
  • Lovely place. The priest did a very nice job. The organ was a bit too loud, and it had the very impersonal feeling that cathedrals often do. But a lovely place. My kids enjoyed it.
