My first time at a Catholic service, lots of classic routine components but a nice personal touch from the priest amongst the formality of an elderly person's funeral

Attended the Cathedral for Sunday Mass. The stained glass windows are beautiful. The music was lovely and prayerful. The locals were friendly and the whole experience was very enjoyable.

We enjoyed our quick visit there, as I understood this place is a bishop's seat (?), very suitably furnished and spacious.

This is a lovely cathedral to visit when in Hamilton. Located in central Hamilton, it has beautiful stain glass windows, a peaceful sanctuary and a place to worship and spiritual meditation.

Central Hamilton City just over the Bridge Street, Bridge. Beautiful cathedral with gorgeous lead light windows. Open for prayer and viewing all day and most of the evening. Solitude and a quiet place for prayer.

I always enjoy attending Mass at this Church. My last visit was during a very sad occasion. It is a magnificent building and you feel the beautiful vibes. Great place to visit even for non Catholics.

Sorry, only just now seen your question. Seats a few hundred I would guess but the Cathedral office will be able to give you more accurate info. Cheers Ross
