4.5
The Cathedral of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary is the mother church of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Juneau. The cathedral is located at 416 Fifth Street in Juneau, Alaska. The cathedral may be the smallest in North America.
In 1885, a parish was created for the growing mining community in Alaska's Silverbow Basin. A church was built in 1886 on the same block on Fifth Street where the cathedral currently sits. This church was replaced in 1910 with the present cathedral building. The church was consecrated a cathedral in 1951, when the Diocese of Juneau was created.

  • Beautiful small Catholic Church in historic Juneau Alaska. It is only .08 miles from the where the cruise ships dock. I walked from the pier to the church but part of the walk is up a steep incline and rain is always likely, so I don't recommend it! I found out after I arrived at the church (looking like a drowned rat) that there is a free shuttle bus that is available. To ride you can call the church and arrange to be picked up. The church is beautiful, the mass was lovely and this church also happens to be the smallest cathedral in North America. Well worth a visit.
  • Pleasant church. Great staff. I really connected to this place. Welcoming and friendly.
