This church is beautiful on the inside. Worthwhile to go inside and sit down and pray or meditate. Look carefully at the stained glass also.

Visited to walk through the Holy doors for the year of mercy. What a beautiful church. The Architecture and paintings left me feeling like I had been to a holy place.

We stopped in for a short visit and were mesmerized by the beauty of the church. The altar and stained glass windows are amazing.

We went to the Cathedral for Palm Sunday mass. It was a beautiful service. The local people were very welcoming. We returned the next afternoon to visit and view the artwork and building itself. Well-worth the time.

This church is beautiful inside and worth a peak if you are walking by. There isn't that much to see, just the main sanctuary area, which is quite impressive, but I think I only spent 5 minutes inside and felt that was enough.

Beautiful church with phenomenal choir. So happy we could share this beautiful cathedral with you. The people were warm and welcoming and located right next door to where we were staying in the John Rutledge inn.

This church is on the small side of what I am use to seeing with cathedral's, but the stained glass is beautiful and worth the time to stop in and see.

It is nice to see that you can visit a beautiful cathedral here in the states and not have to go all the way to Europe.
