“Beautiful convergence of new and old”
Reviewed 12 July 2014 via mobile

The building is beautifully architected. It's expansion highlights the modern era with its natural lighting and glass/steel materials without detracting from its original charm. Check Mass times before attending.

St Mary's is beatiful and the restoration work blends history with modern themes making it a beautiful blend of old and new. A great space to ponder life and faith.

“Old and the new”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

My first impression 47 years ago still stands. A Cathedral of our time. Whilst our vision is of the old and preserved, St Mary's Perth is an iconic building with architecture to reflect the old and the new. A Cathedral in any city is the most visited. This one is definitely worth a visit. You can calm your soul in whichever time you wish to be in. Take time to reflect or light a candle at the beautiful shrine to the Virgin Mary.
