I love this cur h. It is beautiful and has a choir that just takes you away with praise and thanks. The mass here is touching. The priest is thoughtful on his homily. The church itself is spectacular.

Beautiful church. We attended our nephews funeral service here. It was a beautiful ceremony. Comfortable seating which helped after such a devastating loss.

I went to Sacred Heart Cathedral school and I remembered this church well. Well after years of not visiting I went back for a family funeral and I was so disappointed that they removed all the wooden pews and in their place....folding chairs!?! AWFUL

The mass was a corral mass with beautiful music by the church choir. The Cathedral has been completely renovated. There is a beautiful organ. Stained glass windows, tall ceilings and decorations. We felt very welcome even though this is not our usual church.

I would not recommend to make a special trip to visit. For a "Cathedral" this could be considered nothing special. Despite this enjoy the visit and the architecture.

Sacred Heart Cathedral in Rochester is perhaps known best for its new organ, a very fine and beautiful instrument. The choir, on the other hand, is mediocre and not worthy of a cathedral. Built in a Gothic style, but much newer, it is a bit...More

Beautiful church with excellent artwork and masonry. Very historic to the area although situated in what is now fairly ghetto. Parking lot is fenced in and relatively safe. Have one of the biggest organs I've ever seen. Its massive!
