Nice church and a good place to go. Downside is parking is mainly street parking, so you have to pay to park. Lots of good stain glass, the inside is nice as well.

Definitely worth taking a few moments to check out this gorgeous Catholic church. There are only 2/3 of these fine examples of stunning cathedrals in the Spokane area. Beautiful stained glass windows and stations of the cross along the perimeter walls greet you as you enter through the heavy brass doors. You can spend about 20-45 minutes and the walk... More

The grey, stone exterior belies the beauty contained within this cathedral. I we go to Sunday mass whenever we can to enjoy the light streaming in through the amazing stained glass windows and to hear the choir and the accompanying organ. A can't miss spot for someone visiting Spokane, and just someone looking for a place to have your spirits... More

this church is not a common tourist attraction and not the kind of place that is often noted in travel guides, but if you are into cool architecture it is really something to see. you are welcome to enter and look around, they are helpful and dont mind you checking it out, except on sundays i would imagine.

For those of faith, the Cathedral is a wonderful place to visit. It can be easily reached from downtown hotels with Masses at 6:30 AM and Noon during the week.

We've been visiting as many Catholic cathedrals as possible during this Holy Year of Mercy, so while in Spokane recently, we went to the cathedral. It was lovely, as many cathedrals of that era are. A large section hanging over the current altar is apparently going to be removed to enhance accoustics. We were especially impressed with the welcome packets... More

Within walking distance from hotels. 6:30am Mass Monday - Friday. Parishoners were friendly and this was a relaxing, peaceful place to worship.

We were staying at the Davenport hotel this April 2016 and decided to attend mass on Sunday. We were happy to find that the Cathedral of Our Lady of Lourdes was close by. It was a beautiful warm Sunday morning, the exterior of church is majestic and we could not wait to go inside and see the stained glass windows.... More

Very near Riverfront Park. We were fortunate to hear the priest practicing his chants for next week's Easter service.
