After a very big refurbishment and millions of dollars St Mary's Cathedral looks beautiful. This was my school church (Mercedes is across the road) and it is lovely to visit now to see how beautiful it is.

Hello and thank you for reviewing the Cathedral. The "Million Hail Marys" you refer to would have been the group who recite the rosary after midday Mass every day. I hope you arrived early enough to see the Mass preceding the rosary. The Cathedral's prime...More

St Mary's Cathedral is huge and very beautiful. Unfortunately we visited on a Saturday and there was a wedding in process, still I could see the magnificent structures and stain glass windows. The size is just breath taking and beautiful.More

Set interestingly in a Square with traditional buildings. Yet overlooked by Royal Perth Hospital, with Emergency Admissions nearby. It is Cathedral with contemporary additions. Lovely stained glass. Good acoustics. Still practising Cathedral. Visitors made especially welcome.

Sorry you found the Cathedral scary - it can be imposing from the outside, certainly at night. We do light the Cathedral decoratively but only until approximately 10:00 pm taking into account environmental and cost considerations. Please come again before 10:00 PM or, better still,...More

There is something about this cathedral that just takes my breath away. It's by no means enormous in size, however it is just a lovely building and quite inspiring.
