Victorian Gothic Architecture.....must see

Attend a mass, or just pop in to see the amazing architecture. 'Feel' the peace. Spend a few minutes or sit and have some alone time. Beautiful!

I am simply amazed with the architecture every time I step into this beautiful church. One truly feels the need to speak in hushed whispers in respect and reverence to the surroundings. From the beauty and majesty of the soaring ceilings to the grace of the stained glass, you are invited to just Be.

Even if you are not a spiritual person, you cannot help but feel something, anything, when here. This is a must see when on the Island.

As a photographer St. Dunstan's Basilica is a remarkable building. From the outside, every crook and cranny has interest. The stones and carvings are intricate and beautiful, each telling a story of time and weathering history. Once you enter the doors you are swept away by the scents, sounds and sights from floor to ceilings to walls and windows. The... More

After visiting several amazing European cathedrals, it was interesting to see St. Dunstan's as it is a lovely, scaled down version. We did not tour too deeply as there were prayers we did not want to disturb but I would certainly recommend doing so when the schedule permits.

This is my home parish now & for a number of years, but I'm reviewing it not so much as a review but as a method of sharing an exquisitely beautiful cathedral. Open daily, I attend Mass here on weekdays when I may (@ 12:05) and am a regular at the 5 o'clock on Sunday where the music will absolutely... More
