This is a must see! The windows are stunning! The architecture is amazing. And the cathedral has just undergone an amazing restoration. This is a spiritual place and you may join in on the worship, if you so desire. I felt moved.

St. Pattie's is gorgeous! Stop in to light a candle, be silent or meditate amidst the constant hustle and bustle of tourists - it's a bit of a Spiritual Walmart!

Attended mass with full choir and got a surprise when they announced that the Archbishop would be celebrating mass. It is a beautiful Cathedral inside and out.

Yes! Its open to the public free of charge. All they ask is that you be respectful if mass is in session.

There are no fees/tickets - capacity may be limited (first come, first seated) and there is a security desk where bags are checked at the entrance.
