Driving through St. Paul we looked up attractions on Trip Advisor. We were surprised to see it ranked number 1. We have visited many churches all over the world and St. Paul measures up with any cathedral we have seen. Do not miss an opportunity...More

I’ve been to this church ever since I was a little kid. It’s beautiful from the outside and absolutely breathtaking from the inside. Whether you’re Catholic or Christian it’s a must see for all.

A beautiful building, with great acoustics. Enjoy the sounds of the holidays, the scent of pine, and families singing together. A truly unique experience.

If you are in the ST. Paul area this Cathedral is one of the most beautiful in the United States. Amazing that is was build in the early 1900's. Pew near the front right side with plaque noting RFK attendance.

Sorry Bill, Can't accurately answer but reckon if you contact the Archdiocese Office (Google it) they would be able to assist or advise you. Failing that contact the Local tourist office ? Just make sure you don't miss it... More
