What a lovely Cathedral. Very quiet and peaceful for my visit, stunning stained glass and an awe inspiring exterior, difficult to get a good photo, as the pretty garden is not big enough to get far enough away!

This Cathedral was quite different to any others that I have visited in Europe, Asia & the Pacific.
The interior reminded one of Spanish Mission style similar to the Cathedral in Geraldton, Western Australia in which the brickwork is laid in coloured bands. There was nothing to dislike there.

The exterior of the church is breathtaking, with the red and white bricks and the size of the church.
Inside, there are stained glass panels depicting the various mysteries of the rosary, and some of the saints. Many statues too.

We attended an English mass at 8.15am. It is a Roman Catholic church. The service was familiar but they do love their Latin songs! Sermon was in a mix of English and Burmese, and slightly over twenty minutes.

Must visit. The church is very big. Seeing the stained glass with your own eyes is much more beautiful than in any picture.

We joined the Saturday mass and had been asked and confirmed by some people if we are Catholic Rome. It was awkward but still we enjoy the mass very much. We didn't had time to take picture inside the church as they closed the church just after the mass is finished.
