  • Moderately sized Cathedral, pretty traditional. In very nice condition. I was here for Assumption and it was a very nice mass.  more »
  • Simple but beautiful church. The outside of this church looks great and the inside gives praise to God too. Lost a star because the prayers did not specifically mention our men and women in the military. Remember that Jesus died for our soul but our men and women in the military are ready n willing to die for our freedom, including the freedom to gather at places just like this church. Also, the homily •almost• had a political bias. No politics! The simple solution is usually not the best solution.
  • Beautiful church. They have some beautiful statues representing our blessed Mother and so many of our wonderful saints. We attended daily mass celebrated at noon and it was great. The priest's homily was definitely uplifting with regard to how we each are called to lift each other up. .n
