  • Well kept, very artistic, but also a very prayerful environment! The church has beautiful stain glass windows and rich details on saints and reliques  more »
  • Size is perfect for intimate sized wedding. Parking can be a bit of a challenge if the weather doesn’t cooperate but a good sized parking area across the street from the Cathedral.  more »
  • The space we used for the rehearsal dinner and the wedding reception were both very lovely and the kitchens well equipped.  more »

  • What a beautiful edifice and tribute to God. Attended service there and was totally impressed with all facets. The stained glass windows are truly beautiful and the organ music was excellent and balanced. Architecture is also impressive. You will walk out inspired....I know I did.
  • If you're looking for a beautiful history rich cathedral with a beautiful choir and amazing priest, this is the church for you.
  • St John's Berchmans Cathedral is a beautiful church located in an older part of town. It's not called a cathedral for nothing! Even if you aren't Catholic, this church will inspire you with its vaulted knave, arches, beautiful stained glass windows, wood pews, and statuary. The home of religious artifacts and a relic, masses are in Latin and English with a symphony like choir. If for some reason you miss regular mass St. John's has one at 5:30 pm on Sundays. With my crazy work schedule, lately I've been a frequent visitor!
  • Was there for a funeral..The people were friendly, made you feel comfortable
  • Very pretty church. Welcoming people.
