  • Totally unique. Loved it. Fabulous welcome and a wonderful service the morning after some friends were married in the Chapel at the Igloo Hotel in nearby Sorrisniva. We were invited for an impromptu tour of the Katedralen and got to see the work in progress for the Northern Lights experience they are going to install here. I loved the fact that the entrance to the cathedral faces straight down towards the University and not towards the traditional compass direction. It's quite magical, and this is coming from someone who loves carved stone buildings... The statue of Christ at the Communion Table really is a powerful evocation of His Presence and the focus of the life of the Cathedral is Christ, led by the Father and then out to the community...
  • Modern and nice architecture. Don´t expect the magnificence of a gothic cathedral, though.
  • Must visit if you are in the area.
  • this building when i soo it i feel my self in Al ain city in UAE same building
  • It's a great Church, which is both simple and complicated decorated at the same time. Alludes a lot of traditions in the area when it comes to building style. A building that is available to many things.
