A lovely church with a wonderful and welcoming vibe. I went into the church to pray and the church is so beautiful and warm and made me remember how proud I am to be Catholic.

We had a wonderful guided tour of this incredible Cathedral. You really need to have a guided tour to get the full Historic value. It is a beautiful building. We were glad we did this tour.
