If you are a lover of stained glass, do not pass this place without looking in and enjoying the views. I went on an overcast day, but there was still beauty in the windows.

Worth a short stop to appreciate the beauty and solemness. One of the cooler places to sit and reflect the day we visited.

We stopped into this lovely church when we were walking all over Charleston. We wandered through the beautiful inside with its big stained glass windows, beautiful altar and statues as well. It is worth stopping in on your tour around the city.

Historic cathedral only finished in 2010. Gorgeous windows and super nice people. Nice Saturday evening Mass

I love that it took 17 years to build this church. The history of it is well worth learning! Take a step inside and pay close attention to the details. INCREDIBLE 💞
