  • Beautiful cathedral! It's astounding to imagine that this was built by hand. The Sunday morning masses are very well organized, and leave you with a lasting sense of peace.
  • Lovely and peaceful church. I don't go to mass, but I like to go to churches to sit in peace and think. This church has real candles. I like to light candles for my Mom. I don't care for those LED candles. I don't think they count.
  • First 18 years of my life were lived in Kingston and in the Cathedral Parish. After family, this place has had the greatest influence on my life.
  • Family married here, baptized here, still an active and vibrant parish adapting to all.
  • Beautiful sober Cathedral

Where to stay in Kingston

The most desirable accommodations in Kingston line the waterfront in the city's downtown region, offering views over the wide St. Lawrence River. If you want to immerse yourself in the city's hippest scene, look slightly west to the area around Queen's University, where you'll also enjoy easy access to some of Kingston's most pleasant parks. Those hoping to take some road trips out of the city should consider staying at one of the many motels and guesthouses along Princess Street--there, you're perfectly placed to hit the road and explore the region.
