A wonderful building standing grand at the tops of a hill in the middle of Victoria square. The modern extension and grounds has been cleverly blended which makes it unique. Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful.

Am so glad to have witnessed and participated in the celebration on a Sunday. A little clinical but charming at the same time. Unfortunately I did not have the opportunity to walk the grounds which did look promising.

Attended Mass during Easter and Christmas. A beautiful spot to meditate and pray and the extensions are quite beautiful and fit in well with the old part of the Cathedral.

Saturday evening Vigil Mass was lovely. The female singer was exceptional and the organ powerful and moving. Enjoyed Monsignor Keating's homily.
