  • A place to feel at PEACE...non judgemental just whole and loved......the Cathedral is breathtakingly beautiful inside & out....the LIGHT that shines through to each different dimension capturing the essence of the beauty within.....the HEART speaks volumes
  • It worths a visit. It is located in a lovely town. I had the chance to join an Easter ceremony there, and I felt part of the community. It is a place not only beautiful for the building itself but for the people I met there.
