Attended the Cathedral for Sunday Mass. The stained glass windows are beautiful. The music was lovely and prayerful. The locals were friendly and the whole experience was very enjoyable.

This is a lovely cathedral to visit when in Hamilton. Located in central Hamilton, it has beautiful stain glass windows, a peaceful sanctuary and a place to worship and spiritual meditation.

Central Hamilton City just over the Bridge Street, Bridge. Beautiful cathedral with gorgeous lead light windows. Open for prayer and viewing all day and most of the evening. Solitude and a quiet place for prayer.

I always enjoy attending Mass at this Church. My last visit was during a very sad occasion. It is a magnificent building and you feel the beautiful vibes. Great place to visit even for non Catholics.

Churches are churches. This one has been remodelled at considerable expense. The result is quite a nice, modern Catholic church. It's worth a quick visit.
