Such an oasis of peace in a lovely area. Attended Mass on a weekday morning which was a nice pause in the day for reflection and contemplation. Didn`t realise this had been a cathedral until the 1950s. Architecture is worth seeing.

I stopped by for Monday morning Mass. The cathedral lovely. I was greeted by the parishioner who later led the Rosary before Mass. It is a peaceful stop.
