Unfortunately we visited during an off time and the doors were locked. We walked around the perimeter and enjoyed the architecture as well as the gardens. Make sure you check on times before you go.

For such a big place, it is a very quiet Church. When you walk in, you feel peace and love. This Catholic Church can fit many people in it. They hold Midnight Mass there on Christmas and it is so beautful!

A truly unique interior. ‘Touchdown Jesus’. Awesome stained glass windows. Be sure and visit the crypt which is down the stairs in the left front pews.

My wife and I attended anticipatory Mass on a hot, humid Saturday. The cathedral is bright and airy well suited for contemplation and prayer. The stained glass windows are particularly lovely. The priest and parishioners were welcoming. We had a very moving experience.

I love that church is open so that anyone can come in and view the beautiful architecture. It's open, clean, and historic.

This is a beautiful cathedral with many outstanding stained glass windows. The crypt chapel can be reached by descending a spiral staircase near the front of the church.

We spent around 30 minutes in this facility. Fantastic detail quality construction and plenty of history. When visiting dolphin Street it’s worth a visit

The splendor of this beautiful cathedral is awe-inspiring. Beautiful stained glass windows and the stations of the cross will bring you to tears. Be sure to walk down the winding staircase to the Crypt Chapel. There is a stately old tree on the outside lawn...More

We took a slight detour to visit the cathedral. Worth every minute of the hour detour. Make sure you go down stairs to see the private chapel. They offer pamphlets and a newspaper. The stained glass windows are stunning.
