HCA was confirmed in this beautiful cathedral, and it is a place of peace and spiritual nourishment. Step aside, and let God wrap His loving arms around you as history speaks into present tense.

If you like churches it's quite nice. The entrance is free like most other churches. So it's worth a look if you're in the area.
