Visited on sunday to attend a weekly mass with my friend. The environment around the cathedral and the park are cozy. The distance to many restaurant and its locations in downtown also make this Cathedral has a good mark.

Cathedral is just average considering the size of the city. Went there for Sunday mass and the service and sermon where also average. OK place but not a special place to visit except if you are in the area and want to attend a service

I went to attend Sunday mass in this church and found it beautiful inside and outside. Clean lines exuding strength and beauty in its simplicity. There were plenty of stained glass windows to add color inside the church.

This cathedral is beautiful and an interesting example of architecture in Vancouver. Parking is very limited and it is a functioning church so be sure to check the schedule when you want to visit.
