  • Beautifully-built, relatively new church. Gorgeous lighting. Side chapels for privacy and prayer. Must see!  more »
  • I have visited this parish in the past, but it is not located near me so it is only at the invitation of friends for various ceremonies. I am less focused on the criticisms of the appearance and archi...  more »
  • Besides the religious aspect that remains unique to each, this beautiful contemporary building is nicely integrated into the landscape. Its sleek interior calls for calm and serenity. His organ, its curved benches in one piece, his hotel are works of art on their own. Don't leave without a passage in the crypt at the ground floor, you will discover interesting funerary urns often of Asian origin.

  • 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 .
