The pipe organ in the choir loft is an instrument to behold and the detail of the finishing is rarely seen in churches built since the 1950's. Attend mass (the still have latin masses here) or simply visit... More

What a beautiful cathedral! The building itself is amazing, but the church services are unparalleled. The music is amazing. This is just a wonderfully spiritual place!

This is a wonderful old church in Shreveport, LA. Be sure to check times before you go because it isn't open all day long -- just for services.

A great place to worship the Lord. The liturgies are beautiful, as well as the architecture and stained glass windows.

My wife and I have also attended a number of mass celebrations there. Its beauty is acknowledged far and wide. I particularly love the altar and the area immediately behind the... More
