A must see if visiting St Paul. This church is beautiful. It has the history of the church, and is open to the public.

Great place to attend Mass. They also offer adoration in the lower level. Very beautiful areas to pray throughout.

Looking for a great place to take photos both inside and out, try the Cathedral of St. Paul in the historical Crocus Hill area. Sunset & night photos are especially good.

This is a special landmark in St. Paul. It is a really lovely work of artistic beauty. If you haven't been inside it's well worth the trip!
