  • Saturday Night Live - 7:30 pm meeting (SNOMSM) is one of the best in the Twin Cities. Good idea to get there early enough to get a good seat. Construction currently makes it a bit difficult to get to so plan accordingly - it's worth it! Enjoy!

  • Praise God for his glory and art in the form of this Basilica to honor Mary. As close to Rome as I have been. ⚜️🕊

  • Went with a friend for one of their programs. Everyone there was so friendly and helpful. The church is absolutely beautiful. The only reason for four stars instead of five is because I haven't attended Sunday service there.

  • One of the oldest churches in Minnesota. Very historic.

  • Such a HUGE place. It was very fascinating to me. Everytime I passed through the high way close to this cathedral I wanted to visit this place. Finally I was able to, and loved it. Went there few more times, it is peaceful when there is no mass, can just sit there in silence. Apart from that, they have a huge organ, even larger than the one in James J Hill's house. The details in the cathedral were amazing, this was my first time I saw stained glass work so close. Good visit.
