This is a very peaceful church with astounding acoustics. The architecture is beautiful and the decor is simple which keeps your focus where is should be :) The gardens outside the church are well kept and inviting. One of my favorite stops on the Hamilton.

This is a neo-gothic cathedral built in the 1930's . If one did not know when it was actually built one would guess it was built in the Middle Ages . Amazing detail in the stonework , the stained glass windows and the floor and ceiling .I do not think it is opened for tours and in fact if there is no function going on it is kept locked for security reasons . Check out the schedule and go view it during one of its functions .

The like of these structures won't be seen again. Can't imagine there ever being enough money in one spot to undertake such an edifice. Go and don't worry if you're not of the faith. You'll be made welcome.
