while on vacation went to mass here, the priest who was very young gave a great homily. Even though this was my first time here i felt right at home. The stained glass windows are amazing.

The Cathedral of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary (BVM), on Howard St in Biloxi, is the first Catholic Church, which I can recall visiting. I grew up in Gulfport, just a few miles to the west of Biloxi, and neither of my parents...More

Lovely stained glass windows in this church, reminiscent of European churches. The Deacon is made my husband and I feel very welcomed for mass. You do not have to be Catholic to enjoy the beauty of this church.

You feel the serenity and spirituality when you first enter. It is a beautiful offering even if your religious beliefs are different. It is so worth the visit.

This is an old Catholic Church; I believe the Basilica of the diocese. Soaring ceilings with beautiful dark carved woodwork overshadowed by gorgeous jewel toned stained glass windows.I am looking forward to attending Mass there.

We attended the 7am Mass while visiting Biloxi. The church is only a couple blocks off the beach and an easy walk. Very friendly church with wonderful stained glass windows.

I would suggest calling the church office at (228) 374-1717. They are very nice and they can give you the correct times so you will not run into a funeral mass or some other event that would hinder your tour.
