Flowers on display from various florists. Some very large. About an hour wait once you get in the door, but music and singing keeps you entertained as you admire the beautiful church. Show is the last weekend in January.

This is a beautiful church and it is a very prayerful place to visit and pray. The beautiful statues around the church have been very well kept up. The organ at the back of the church is very good and the sound is great.

This structure is now also considered a 'basilica'. The grandeur of St. Cecilia's can be overpowering at first; the main sanctuary is flanked by smaller chapels. And the Cathedral Arts Project offers many wonderful special events throughout the year...my favorite being the annual flower show...More
