  • I have toured, attended services here and been to weddings here. The building is gorgeous. The midnight mass on Christmas Eve is awe inspiring even if you aren't Catholic  more »
  • The Cathedral is just gorgeous. It is one of the prettiest I have ever seen. Stop by for a moment of quiet, you'll be glad you did.  more »

  • A church is a church is a church. But I would say this I believe is one of the oldest churches in the city if not the state. It is located in a very historic part of downtown.
  • I would like to respond to the wedding photographer who “could not do their job” because they were not allowed in the sanctuary during the wedding ceremony. Weddings are not events purely for the ‘show’. This is a sacrament that Catholics take seriously. In the past when photographers were allowed in during the ceremony, they have been know to stand on the side altars, wander all around the main altar during Mass, or even asked to have the altar removed to allow more room ... all of which is totally disrespectful and does not allow the priest to “do his job.” The best pictures are taken prior to the wedding, and believe it or not, some nice photos can be taken ‘through the glass’ on the vestibule doors. I know this for a fact ... because of my own sons wedding. The Cathedral is a very beautiful and welcoming church.
