Beautiful Church and Mass

We attended the 7am Mass while visiting Biloxi. The church is only a couple blocks off the beach and an easy walk. Very friendly church with wonderful stained glass windows.

By far, this cathedral is incredible. We showed up and the doors were locked. We walked around and found a locked gate and Jenny (a worker) was inside the gate. We told her we were from Chicago and she unlocked the gates and the cathedral and gave us a private tour. My twins are completely different and 1 of them... More

This is the Cathedral so the stained glass windows, architecture, alter, and statues are all beautiful. There is an excellent organist and very good choir which is usually at the 11:00 am Mass. Organist is at most masses.

This church is in the downtown area and while it is a smaller church, it was well attended at the 4 pm Saturday mass. My wife and I felt very welcomed there and we will return in the future.

Went to Mass on Sunday evening and it was like being at home. The people of the parish work together to make it happen. Lovely homily.

The windows in this cathedral are among the most beautiful stained glass windows in the country. The cathedral is worth a visit if you can find it open during the day.

JMJ Most people don't know this Cathedral exists but it is stunning. It has quite a history and the pulpit is beautiful. They were very welcoming for Sunday Mass and I'd check for the hours they are open to visit.

It's a beautiful church for sure. The outside is pretty standard but really the big star of the show are the beautiful stained glass windows. Definitely a must if that's something that you really like to see.
