  • I didn't went inside of this cathedral but it's looking really nice and picturesque from the outside with a nice park around it where I spend some time chilling out.

  • Impressive small city church overlooking the lake & mountains. Immense gray stone church with high ceilings and beautiful stained glass windows. Church is relatively new -- it opened in 1946.

  • The cathedral has the history of itself along the walls. Its a pretty peaceful and insightful place. As far as church goes, its a good place. They don't have a store to sell souvenir though.
  • The stations of the cross are worth going for. Very politcal in nature. Indigenous people featured in the stained glass windows.
  • A lovely spot to sit and reflect. We were lucky enough to be here when a concert was taking place and the accoustics in the building are very good. When you visit please remember that this ia a place of worship and you should act accordingly.
  • A completely different cathedral! lovely
  • Very pretty. There was a small orchestra practicing inside when we were there. Would like to know the history of this church, but couldn't find any placard or info there.
