Absolutely stunning inside. Everything you would expect a cathedral to be. The staff were helpful with history and trivia. Don't miss this.

Was interested to see this cathedral built of sandstone as I had just seen at two Missions in San Antonio. This is not quite that old, built in 1852, an historical architectural treasure for Cleveland. Saw this on my way from visiting the Mather Mansion on Euclid Ave. of the former Millionaires Row (which I learned about from a previous visit to the Hay-McKinney Mansion at the Western Reserve Museum) out to see the mansions in Shaker Heights.

We were here for a wedding and it made a beautiful setting for such a special event. It is not huge or ornate as many cathedrals tend to be, but warm and cozy feeling. No one feels as if they are far away from the altar and are included in the worship service.

Our Cousin was installed this weekend as the 11th Bishop of the Cleveland Archdiocese.. Bishop Nelson Perez brings his down to earth, gentle persona to fill this beautiful Cathedral with Joy!

This cathedral does not have the grandeur of the great European cathedrals but it has its own grandeur for being 20th Century. It has a good feel inside and is reasonably appointed. It boasts of an amazing choir, not without reason. It is the home of the local bishop and Mass is celebrated every day.
