St. John’s is a beautiful church. We were there near Christmas and the church was decorated with wreaths and a life size Nativity scene. Many stain glass windows adorn the church, painted walls and ceiling gives this church it’s magisty.

Only street parking is available but usually there are places available. The cathedral also is a designated stop on the bus and trolley tours, on/off all day.

Like the other people who have replied to this question I do not believe that there are any such Holy Relics on display in this Cathedral.
