I stopped in to this cathedral while walking down Blanshard Street on my way to the Royal BC museum. I think it was about 2:30 PM, but there was a lady up front giving the Hail Mary's and there were at least 10 people sitting...More

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
