I’m widely traveled and have hit most of the great cathedrals in the world or at least in Europe. The interior of this one is up there and worth a visit whether you need to walk or Uber. Gorgeous.

As a cathedral it is very nice. We were there for a Vocal Essence Concert. The acoustics for this type of concert are really horrible. The text and the sound all turn to mush. The piano accompaniment on a new piece could not be heard...More

This cathedral is beautiful and well worth the visit. While it doesn't have the overdone ornate decor found in most European cathedrals, it is light and bright and welcoming. Take time to visit the small museum in the basement and learn about the history of...More

We attended a service here on Sunday. We are Protestant so the perspective may be colored. The service was very nice and the homily was good. The people made us feel welcome. The structure is breathtakingly beautiful. It is reminiscent of the cathedrals in Europe,...More

Even a weekday Mass was wonderful. The location allows it to be seen from all around St. Paul and looks astounding.

Take time to see this house of God, great views from inside and outside this Cathedral. Take time to visit behind the alter, great workmanship and wonderful place to collect your thoughts and to pray.
