One of the loveliest we’ve visited. It’s usually open during the day and there is no charge to enter.

We had the pleasure of attending Sunday mass here during the summer and while the splendor of the cathedral is obvious, the parishioners were welcoming and we were very glad we had attended.

We have a habit for some reason for visiting churches or a church every place we go. Just to see them and the insides. This is one one of the more historical ones and is a sight to see on the inside.

Very much like cathedrals in other countries. Beautiful altar, stained glass windows. Very reverent atmosphere. Never expected something of this kind in Savannah. Absolutely stunning. A must see if you visit Savannah. We used Hop on/off Trolley. Wonderful experience.

Light and airy with exquisite art and features. Not unlike many churches in Europe. Would love to visit again and participate in a service.

There was a midnight Mass. Residents of Savannah told us that you have to arrive very early as the number of people are attending and late arrives end up standing outside for the Mass.
