I had a very bad experience here. My girlfriend and I were thinking of becoming Catholic and attended RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation​ for Adults) classes here for several months. But, after devoting several months of our time the classes were canceled because they weren't...More

We attended the 10 o’clock mass which included a full choir. It was nice to see the church nearly full and everyone was so friendly and welcoming. The altar area is just breathtaking! It is only three blocks from MARTA transit.

Me and my family were staying in a hotel across the street, so, we decided to attend mass, the priest was very kind to us when we asked a few questions. I highly recommend this church, and even more if you want to become parishioner.

I wanted to stop in and see the decor and how the mass was ran. I liked the older style mass too. I would certainly recommend stopping in and snapping some pictures because it is a unique piece of history.

Walked from my hotel to the Basilica and see that it's exterior is under renovation. No surprise though since it was built in 1880 and still lovely. Reading its history, I found that it was built from bricks, not customary at the time, usually churches...More

Beautiful basilica, nice and welcoming. Enjoyed the service, just a block away from our hotel. The current preist is polish and had a dry sense of humor.

I attended DragonCon this past weekend in Atlanta, and had the great fortune to attend Mass at Sacred Heart. This basilica is breathtaking ... the parishioners are welcoming ... and I was thrilled to hear the choir singing in Latin. More than that, I was...More

We attending the Saturday evening mass here while vacationing in Atlanta and it seems to be the closest if you are staying downtown. It was an easy walk from Centennial Park. The church is old fashioned and beautiful and very welcoming.
