I love this Cathedral--what a special place to get married in. It has tremendous character and is stunning inside. A must to see when visiting the Covington area.

Walking into this church is like stepping into a European cathedral. You forget where you are. The stained glass is amazing. It is well worth a trip across the river to view it.

You simply MUST take time to stop by. Pictures do not do this church justice. Don't forget to walk around through the gardens. Search for the gargoyles while you're here too. We almost missed them. Lovely, just lovely.

I have visited many Cathedrals in Europe and this rivals many of them! The stained glass windows and arches are fascinating. And don't forget to check out the gargoyles!! There was a guided tour on Sunday after the 10:00 Mass. Very informative and interesting!

Did not even know about this until checking on Trip Advisor. This cathedral is beautiful. Probably the most beautiful stained glass I have ever seen (and so much if it). We were delighted that someone was rehearsing on "one" of the 3 organs they have. There are mosaics that are breathtaking. Wood carvings that are amazing. I understand that through Aoril they often have free concerts on Sundays. I would love the opportunity to visit during that time . This is an architectural gem
