“Mary in the Diocese Archives is a true treasure!”

Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception
Reviewed 10 August 2017 via mobile

I came here to research my Irish ancestors from Johnville NB and found out that Mary, the diocese archivist, is an amazing woman! If you come prepared with names, dates, and locations, chances are she can help you find something, or at least verify or connect the dots. She is dedicated to her work and thinks of everything. She treats you like you are the most important person to her. And she knows who to contact outside the church for further genealogy contacts.
Thank you, Mary! And thanks to the Diocese of Saint John for providing this valuable service.

The Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception is a beautiful church that boasts gothic architecture. The church has beautifully sculpted statues inside and outside, immaculate stain glass and many other historic and artistic features. It is a must see for those with an interest in architecture and art and historians. It is also a must see for anyone that just loves beautiful things.

We were here for a cruise. We walked the town and came across this Church. We went in and spoke to the Priest who was about to begin daily Mass. We stayed and were happy that we did. It was a nice mass in a wonderful old Church. It will be on our list next time we are in town. It is not very far from the park and City Market.

I have been visiting here since a small child and love the old charm and beauty. Very well kept up for it's age.

Only a local, private tour guide would have brought us here. Olive knew that we would enjoy this stop to pray at beautiful Cathedral of Immaculate Conception. It was especially meaningful during this Year of Mercy.
