  • Religion aside, it is interesting to look at although I won'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.
  • Just stunning. Whoever designed this got it right!
  • This is a beautifully constructed church, inside and out. It's a great place to get some peace and quiet during the day.
  • Super cool structure, shape looks like a uhhh, you know what.... Praise the divine goddess!!?? Love it. Thank you Cardinal oakland for gracing us with this piece of artnatomy
