I had never been inside a cathedral before and it was so beautiful. If you are ever in this area stop in and check it out. If you are unable to do steps this is a challenge.

This is an absolutely gorgeous cathedral. Do not miss this when you are in Sioux Falls. They don't make churches like this anymore.

I've been twice - found parking right there and walked right in. The second visit there was a service in progress so we went in quietly and sat in the back.
