My son's wife drove downtown so I could see the Cathedral of the Madeleine, on my visit in 2013. When we entered, the organist was playing some quiet music and the mere open space of this church took my breath away. We knelt to say a prayer then found the place to light a candle beneath a Mary statue, which... More

I've only seen the temple in pictures, the drive downtown was so impressive. Salt Lake City is a clean and friendly City, we are looking forward to returning this winter.

beautiful inside and out. You can feel the spirituality. The gargoyles are rare these days in the us. The art done for the stations of the cross is very different, and full of very powerful images, they made me think differently about the lords passion.

Although, Salt Lake City is known as the headquarters of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, don't be fooled that everyone and everything is Mormon. The Cathedral of the Madeleine is proof of the vibrant Catholic community in Salt Lake City. The building itself is a refuge from the outside world with beautiful architecture and art. The incredible... More

We attended a relative's wedding at this Cathedral. It is not only impressive but also beautiful inside with the colored glass windows and open interior. It has a very calming effect once you are inside. It is located at one of the oldest residential areas of town.

We only had a few hours in Salt Lake City and this was one of the must see locations. Even if you are not religious go for a look see at the wonderful architecture. We loved it.

This is a truly unique and beautiful Catholic Church. I was particularly drawn to the desert motif in the Stations.

Went for Sunday Mass while on vacation and was welcomed with smiling faces. The wonderful thing about Catholicism is you can go anywhere around the world and feel at home because the Mass is all the same!

The Mormons know how to build palaces to God or are they palaces to themselves? I'm wondering more as I visited the buildings how they're "marketing" their religion. They own half of downtown even the exotic mall they built.
