  • This church is my church home. Love the people and service! They also do amazing with their youth Faith Formation classes! Definitely recommend, come visit us!
  • This is the place to go on Sunday at 12:30. You can understand the Pastor. Park right out front. They even play their pipe organ. They have a lady that sings like an Angle. She most likely is an Angle, just has not gotten her wings yet. Tell God that Frank sent you! Make sure you put all your spare change and the money you were going to buy a T-SHIRT with in the basket. This is St. MARY'S CATHEDRAL. Let her know I said "thank you". She knows why! May the glory of God be with you on the Island and each day till the day you get to sit at the right hand and thank him/her in person. I hope I see you there. Church! Well I guess Heaven too. It's just I got a lot of work here to do for God so it may be a decade or two. Lol.
