We attended 2 masses there. Palm Sunday and Good Friday. The Cathedral is so beautiful, the must see stained glass windows. The choir is outstanding, a person might think they are at the Opera instead of being at mass. Another must see in Victoria

My family and I came across this cathedral when walking around downtown. We didn't get a chance to enter but from the outside it was beautiful. Definitely take the time to stroll the streets away from the inner harbor. You'll find treasures like this one.

Beautiful church. Attended 2 masses and found ushers and parishoners to be very friendly. Very nice stained glass windows. A guide book is available that outlines the cathedral's history and the windows.

When you look at the outside of the St Andrew's Cathedral you have no idea how beautiful it is inside. Take the time to go in and look, you will be impressed.

My wife and I attended a church service on Sunday August 13, 2017 and were very impressed with design and architecture of such an old building, let alone a church!
