Went to visit the church and decided to go to mass there the next day. The church is beautiful. If you are looking for mass go here as it is nice to see how the old churches were built.

Very beautiful and historic holy place. The parish (although not the current building) traces back to the original French settlers. Absolutely worth a visit. Wish I had been able to attend mass.

Located a short distance from our hotel, the cathedral is a nice church, but compared to other basilicas around the country and world, it is rather modest. The front of the church is flanked by two large, gold domed topped towers. The church is home to a nice display of stained glass. ***if you enter please be respectful, as this... More

Our "tourist" plans fell thru on Sunday morning so we decided to attend mass before going back home. Soooo glad we did. The building itself it amazing, well worth stopping by when the sanctuary is open, the service is even nicer however. With most Catholic churches moving to more modern styles this Catheral is still what I would describe as... More

Stained glass windows are beautiful. Was there the Saturday before Easter so it was decorated for Easter. Very peaceful and comforting to be there. Take a minute to sit and remember what is important.
