Stopped in here to light a candle (appreciated the votive stand!) and saw a church community about to begin worship. The stone and stained glass are attractive, albeit not particularly noteworthy. They had monitors around the church so that parishioners could see the action at...More

This is a magnificent and inspiring cathedral - well worth the visit. Times of mass are listed online. We went to a well attended excellent 6:25 Saturday service. Well maintained grounds, across from the national park, and just a short walk from the "downtown shopping"...More
