I attended Mass here on the feast of the Holy Rosary. A friend of mine became a concecrated virgin living in the world. The mass was beautiful. The outside of the Cathedral is under construction. The inside is beautiful. A beautiful place to attend mass.

This is a great piece of history and a beautiful display of architecture inspired by the churches of Europe. One of the nicest churches you'll see outside of Ottawa or Montreal

For the last 2 Christmasses, I've been attending Mass at this very beautiful Gothic Cathedral! It is very heavenly, the music, the singing, the chanting, the homily!
