The Cathedral may not be as large or fancy as the Notre Dame in Montreal, but it still is a very impressive structure. We always attend Mass at the Cathedral every time we visit Vancouver.

A lovely, small cathedral convenient to downtown hotels. We came for 8am Mass and found a beautiful building with lovely stained glass windows. The liturgy was okay - no organist or special reference to Pentecost, but lots of churches keep the first Mass very simple. At the end of the service, we were able to walk to the convention center in time for our 9am conference start.

Such a lovely and serene place. The architecture is beautiful. Its nice and quiet. Was a pleasure to sit there and admire the cathedral and offer our prayers. If you visit downtown you must visit this cathedral as well.

The cathedral's morning Mass was wonderful and welcoming. A must for Catholics visiting Vancouver. The windows and architecture are worth visiting by themselves aside from Mass. Pope John Paul II visited on his trip to Canada, so the site is extra special. Felt like home.

The stained glasses are stunning! It is definitely worth a stop. I was quite impressed also by all the details of the church, the ceiling, the doors, and it is a great location to unwind and say a little prayer.
