Very interesting with wonderful views. Only a 10 Minuite walk from the ferry, but up hill. Friendly staff.

This 20th century cathedral is as peaceful as it is beautiful. They offer daily Mass at 10am. I attended a service and thoroughly enjoyed it. Seems like a lovely parish to be a part of.

We thought this place was so dramatic a monument to those who had lost theirblives at sea.The bulding faces the sea which obviously addresses those brave seafarers who have fallen.

Mass here is at 10,30 on Sundays. The church is big. The priest gave a very good homily - and from a pulpit! Great to see. A real pity that the Church has altar rails that weren't used.
