Designed in Baroque style of architecture, the Cathedral of Saint Patrick dates abck to the 19th century and is the seat of the Bishop and the mother church of the Diocese of Harrisburg. Catholic religion came to Pennsylvania prior to the American Revolutionary war and the first chapels of the city were built by the German Jesuits. The design of the church is why it is a popular spot in the city. The exteriors covered in granite, rich interiors with stained-glass art, elaborate paintings and warm lightings and a series of columns that support colourful arches and lead to the main altar, form quiet a sight. There is art on every inch of the church and the free standing altar, gorgeous frescoes and mural and shrines dedicated to the Virgin Mary and the bishop, all spin into a different time unlike any other in the city. If you are crazy for art, a walk here will leave you in awe! When here, don’t forget to see the Bronze crucifix placed at the rear of the cathedral.

Cathedral Of Saint Patrick Reviews & Ratings
Went to an ordination here and this place is spectacular! Beautiful, elegantly designed and the acoustics are out of this world! Exactly what you want your cathedral to be, and I can't wait to visit again!
A beautiful and historic place that uplifts the spirit. The last few times I went, the homily was very interesting, timely and relevant, insightful, nice food for thought... but sometimes hard to hear as the acoustics need work. Maybe rugs up the aisles would help with the echo. Anyway I am always feeling very welcomed there. It is a laid back and non judgmental environment that fits someone who is seeking either just a little respite from the world, a regular reset button and or some time with God. The special events are lovely. It is the only church I like to go to.
The people are so nice and friendly as well as the priest's. The masses are beautiful. The church itself is beautiful. If you're in the area stop by. It's a must see place.
The stained glass windows and stations of the Cross are beautiful works of art.
I haven't went to church here yet but I go to the dinners on Sunday and they are really good. Plus it's always clean. And the people and volunteers are always really nice and kind and respectful
