What a gorgeous cathedral! We found the cathedral breath taking! The mass was great and two priests which is a rarity. The architecture was stunning. The nativity with the suspended angels was the best. Mass and cathedral viewing a must for us & would recommend...More

The title says everything. No fee but $3 donation requested. The stain glass is very impressive and if you are lucky they will have a 5-10 minute discussion led by a volunteer of the church’s history and make up. Go here.

This is a beautiful church to visit; the interior is beautiful and worth the visit. Suggestions are to donate $3 per person.

Self tour of building. Donations suggested for touring the church. Very beautiful architecture comparable to many cathedrals ive visited in Europe. Active catholic church so no touring allowed during church services.
