We loved visiting such an iconic place as St. Patrick's Cathedral. There is such spirituality in the cathedral and such beautiful stained glass windows. The pipe organ is also spectacular.

Great architectural photo ops abound here. It also brought back childhood memories for me as the cathedral impressed me for the first time over 40 years ago.

The Cathedral has been clocked in scaffolding for years! It is finally unveiled and it was worth the wait. The Cathedral is stunning inside and outside. Take time to pop in for a look.

Yes!! It is very traditional—the crèche is awesome and the choir sang songs all would be familiar with! Can’t believe your pastor is so .... does he not know about the Advent Candles??? Hope you see St Patrick’s someday!
