  • Frequent enough the Cathedral for participating in youth group, movement, etc. Has ample space for meetings, several spaces for any activity, the Church inside is a true work of art, paintings that just looking to have a notion. It is a beautiful setting for weddings and other parties, even for a simple daily mass at noon!
