An amazing church. The stain glass windows were beautiful. The interior was quite a surprise from the fairly austere dark brick of the exterior. Worth a look.

I wasn't able to attend Mass here, but I did stop in for a few minutes of prayer after learning my grandparents were married here back in the '50s. It is a gorgeous church!

We were biking by and curious to see the inside of the church. Was very impressive. Vaulted ceilings and impressive stain glass windows.

I did not attend a mass here but did walk through it and it was breathtaking. Learning about the steeple was an added but of history that was interesting as well.

We were able to visit this Cathedral on our recent visit to Charleston. It was not on a walking tour we made but it was well worth the walk to see this beautiful church. Very peaceful and serene. The stained glass windows are individual masterpieces.

The stained glass windows in the Cathedral are beautiful and worth seeing. They tell the stories in the life of Jesus and cause one to think upon faith. Very awe inspiring!
