You can feel the history and spirit in this church. The stain glass windows and the statues are beautiful. I just wished I could have heard the pipe organ

While we could not go inside today, this church is another amazing example of the history you will find in Kingston. Stunning stained glass windows and architecture. It is an imposing structure and we wee awestruck.

As a resident of Kingston, I usually attend my own Parish Church; however, we did a tour of the Cathedral of Saint Mary as part of a church function. The Cathedral is very pretty, with beautiful stained-glass windows, and a lovely old organ.

What a magnificent Building. We were fortunate to view this on our stay in Kingston. It reminds me of the grand Cathedrals we have seen in Europe.

This is a beautiful cathedral with so much to see. It may not be as big as the European counterparts but it is equally as stunning. Gotta go if in Kingston.
