The 6 windows in the nave of the church have been replaced with 100 year old stained glass windows that were "rescued" from a closed church in PA. They were restored and brought to Anchorage as part of the Cathedral's 100 year anniversary program. Through...More

I noticed the church as we had a brief stop in Anchorage during a cruisetour and were walking along Fifth Ave. I am always attracted by interesting building exteriors, especially those of churches, and the pretty exterior structure of Holy Family Cathedral got my attention....More
