I love visiting cathedrals wherever I can and this one has got to be near or at the top of my list. Just stunning and beautiful. The architecture and artwork accentuate each other perfectly. A must visit if you are in Harrisburg. Do not miss this beautiful church.

I have walked past this church hundreds of times but finally visited last week for Ash Wednesday Mass. I'm sorry it took me so long to go inside! This is the kind of gorgeous architecture and interior that isn't built in churches anymore. From the dome to the stained glass windows, the entire building is a work of art. The... More

We stopped in for a quick visit on Sunday before touring the Capitol building. Beautiful inside and out. The green dome is delightful. Well worth checking out if in downtown Harrisburg.

The Capitol Building contrasts nicely with the Cathedral Dome. With some amusement State Street and Church Street intersect, so Church and State do meet in the State of Pennsylvania. Worth a visit.

After visiting the state Capitol building I saw this site on Tripadviser. It's a beautiful church on historic State Street just down the block. It's free and only takes 15-20 minutes to view this beautiful church. Take a few shots then perhaps walk down the street to Amp Coffee Shop for a cup of joe.

A gem of architecture second to none! From the stained windows to the statuary, the Stations of the Cross, the Altar -- they all can stand side by side with any ancient European church. In one word: BEAUTIFUL. Take your camera and if there is no celebration of the Mass during your visit, take several photos. During this Year of... More

A breathtaking place of worship. A true "gem" to celebrate a special occasion in prayer or to attend regular Mass.

Hard to photograph in its entirety from the outside, but what you can get is beautiful. Since it is just down the street from the Capitol building and the Methodist church, it makes a good photo looking up at the Capitol. I just opened the front door on a Tuesday afternoon and went in. Door was unlocked and nobody in... More
