As soon as you enter St Patricks, you can admire the excellent architecture but also how calm and quiet it is vs. the streets outside. A perfect oasis within the city.

I cried when I saw St. Pat’s... so historic. My husband and I are Catholic and we’re pretty impressed. We stopped to pray and looked at all the side altars dedicated to different saints, and apparitions of the Blessed Mother.

No tickets needed. I imagine that yes, anyone can attend. It was a very welcome feel to the church. There were some security people, but hundreds of.people wandering around the church while tons of other people attended mass.
