What a wonderful cathedral - they pay attention to music detail here, and every year the midnight mass is superb. The cathedral is an architectural diamond, in the middle of steel city, and so functional and yet spiritual.

I attended Mass here on the feast of the Holy Rosary. A friend of mine became a concecrated virgin living in the world. The mass was beautiful. The outside of the Cathedral is under construction. The inside is beautiful. A beautiful place to attend mass.
