AMAZING Mass

Most beautiful Church in Alabama. Choir is awesome. If you are Catholic you must attend Mass here at lease once to hear the choir.

One of my friends and co-workers got married here and I was privileged to be invited to her wedding. It was a beautiful wedding. This is a beautiful old church and if you get the chance to see it you should take the opportunity.

This is the only cathedral in Mobile and it is very beautiful. Make sure you make a visit when the pipe organ is playing. Christmas Eve Midnight Mass is a great thing to see.

The Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception is magnificent! From the stained glass windows, the huge columns to the beautiful statues. The pews are so old that you can feel the history sitting in them! The double golden domes glisten in the sunlight! Well worth the visit, you will not be sorry.

A great and well preserved 19th century Catholic Cathedral. The stained glass windows were especially impressive, followed by the painting on the ceiling and the stations of the cross. We liked how the cathedral was open so you can walk right in. Many churches are locked up tight these days, to protect against vandals. It only takes 15 minutes or... More

This is such a beautiful and peaceful church. The signs direct you to enter from the left or right doors on the side of the front entrance instead of the center door. We really enjoyed walking around and viewing the stained glass.

Magnificent cathedral with stained glass windows. Be sure to visit the crypt at the bottom of the spiral staircase. How I wish they built churches like this today.
