  • Every time I enter this cathedral, the word "splendid!" comes to mind over and over again. It's a remarkably beautiful church, inside and out.  more »
  • Last visited this church 20 years ago. I live 125 miles away and made a visit while in town. The cathedral is well kept and the stain glass windows are beautiful.  more »
  • Went to an ordination here and this place is spectacular! Beautiful, elegantly designed and the acoustics are out of this world! Exactly what you want your cathedral to be, and I can't wait to visit again!
  • A beautiful and historic place that uplifts the spirit. The last few times I went, the homily was very interesting, timely and relevant, insightful, nice food for thought... but sometimes hard to hear as the acoustics need work. Maybe rugs up the aisles would help with the echo. Anyway I am always feeling very welcomed there. It is a laid back and non judgmental environment that fits someone who is seeking either just a little respite from the world, a regular reset button and or some time with God. The special events are lovely. It is the only church I like to go to.
