  • The Cathedral of Christ the light of aptly named. The bias of a very modern construction for a cathedral is very original and exchange of the churches and cathedrals often very dark. You might think that glass being a cold material, we'd also have this feeling inside. Gold curiously, due to the presence of a dominant light wood and the nave bathed in natural light. a warm feeling emerges and there is an incredible sense of peace and serenity inside quite favourable to prayer.

  • From the outside, this modern cathedral does not appear to be a religious building. The cathedral opened in 2008, nearly 20 years after the 1989 earthquake destroyed Oakland's cathedral at the time. O...  more »

  • Religion aside, it is interesting to look at although I wouldn't call it beautiful. Nicknamed the standing rib roast. Beautiful wood inside and plenty of light. If you go to a vocal/music performance here, the acoustics are the worst I've ever experienced. It is cave-like echo chamber.
  • This is a great place to worship our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. As in any facility it has amazing services and services that can be elevated. Unfortunately the Cathedral is not a food bank but at times has small amounts of can goods available for people in need depending on the generosity of the attending parishioners. We do have a community clinic that treats uninsured or homeless persons for routine check ups and minor health issues. Please call the Cathedral for scheduled hours of operation. God is within us all, let his light fill your spirit with his words. ROMANS 12:1 I urge you, then, brothers, remembering the mercies of God, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, dedicated and acceptable to God; that is the kind of worship for you, as sensible people.
  • Great service at 11am great place to pray. The building is inside is lovely and breath taking.
  • Just stunning. Whoever designed this got it right!
  • Trumps wig and hairdo looks better than what happened here .
