“If you are looking for a friendly church”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

I know this is wrong, but. Our parish Priest retired and he was replaced with a Priest that speaks English as a second language. My husband could not understand him. So down to the Cathedral we went. We have found a new home. It is beautiful, a great organ and everyone just welcomed you in.

“A very peaceful church”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

This is a beautiful church but the parking is somewhat limited. It is just west of downtown Spokane.

“Beautiful Music”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2013

We were staying at the Spokane Club and decided to drop into the 11:00 mass before leaving town. I sat in the back row (I'm neither Catholic not christian). I overheard the priest say to the alter boy "make sure you wait until the song is over before you approach the altar because I love this song." At first I thought it odd, but quickly realized what he meant once the music started. If you want to hear beautiful hymns on a beautiful pipe organ then it is worth an experience. Also, it is located in a beautiful little corner of Spokane,

“Truly Beautiful No Matter Your Beliefs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2013

I'm not Catholic, or even ANY religion for that matter, but there is something very soothing about the sacred space and beautiful architecture of old churches. We visited three while in Spokane (Presbyterian, Cathedral of Our Lady of Lourdes and Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist).

When we were visiting with the groundsman at the Presbyterian church, he told us that the three front doors (bronze) on Our Lady of Lourdes, were cast by a local artist who used faces/images of local residents for the images.

We had driven by this cathedral, (Cathedral of Our Lady of Lourdes), looking for someplace else and decided we had to stop and take a look around. I took a lot of photos. The church was locked so we were unable to get a look inside.

This is a "mother church", and was built in 1915. The website has some more photos.

An easy walk from downtown Spokane, the Cathedral offers a full Mass schedule, inspiring music, and traditional Mass service.
