When we first got a glimpse of this cathedral I told John it sure looked like Notre Dame, a smaller version of course. When we began our tour we learned that it’s in Gothic style. That’s what Notre Dame and Chartres are too, so I was on the right track.
Built on a hill, it stands with great dignity and a lovely view. The property was purchased in 1905 but the cathedral wasn’t ready for the congregation until 1924. The most phenomenal sights are the stained glass windows. In the early days of the church those windows were how the faithful were taught. I loved how these have the scriptures written in the glass, in English. It’s rare to see any words, much less than they are in English.
Stunningly beautiful. We also attended their noon Mass, with our priest concelebrating. That was lovely as well.
