I walked in and the Rosary was being cited. I sat down and listened. The church had a good crowd. The gift shop was open, they had all kind of nice things to buy. Beautiful statues even one about 4 foot tall.

Looking for peace in the middle of the city? Great place to reflect and meditate. One can also catch the daily noon masses.

This cathedral may not compete with Esztergom/Hungary, Paris and London, but certainly ne plus ultra for this part of the world. Stained glass, statuary, architecture - this has it all! Also impressed with the vast number of people praying and meditating. I suspect the confessional...More

Wonderful choir, soloists and organist treated us to a splendid hour long concert of Christmas music and supported us during the Mass which followed.

Beautiful, historical and placed in DT Vancouver. It offers amazing architecture and glass windows that are just amazing. Free entry and you do not need to come for a mass.

Pretty church with option of confessionals on English, Spanish, and Portuguese. Don't miss the sleeping figure on the bench.

This was actually my third visit to Our Lady of the Holy Rosary. This 117 year old cathedral is an oasis of stillness and quiet in the heart of bustling downtown Vancouver. The architecture is beautiful, the stained glass windows breathtaking. I hope to visit...More

This is a very enjoyable church that welcomes everyone. We lit candles, said prayers and gave thanks for all we have. On our travels we enjoy visiting churches, not because we are religious but they hold so much history. As our friends say about traveling...More

Visited on sunday to attend a weekly mass with my friend. The environment around the cathedral and the park are cozy. The distance to many restaurant and its locations in downtown also make this Cathedral has a good mark.
