Cathedral Basilica Of St Francis Of Assisi Reviews & Ratings
The bells calling the faithful to Saturday evening mass drew us off the Plaza on 8/3/19 to come have a look. We were greeted warmly at the door and took a reverential peek before leaving to stroll the lovely grounds. A feeling of sanctuary pervaded the area. Highly recommend visiting this cathedral while in Santa Fe.
Such a beautiful church. We love the Gift shop and entire area around the block. It's nice to walk around and see the shops in the area.
Went here in March 19'. The lady basically running the parish sent message of the bishop "NO ONE IS TO RECEIVE ON THE TONGUE, NOT PERMITTED HERE'. All old female servers, lay persons at front center of alter handling our precious Lord with their UNCONSECRATED HANDS. Priest, may God bless him, was shoved off to the left of the alter. The lack of reverence or belief by those controlling the liturgy was sickening. The poor laity seem to know better than to show their humility to the Holy Eucharist. They would be scorned. The poor angels watch this, Our Lady watched this. God watches. "Why do we insist on receiving Communion standing and on the hand? Why this attitude of lack of submission to the signs of God? May no priest dare to impose his authority in this matter by refusing or mistreating those who wish to receive Communion kneeling and on the tongue. Let us come as children and humbly receive the Body of Christ on our knees and on our tongue. The saints give us the example. They are the models to be imitated that God offers us!" Cardinal Sarah
Beautiful old church. Very good brochures explaining different religious or historical areas. The park around the cathedral is great and very well maintained.
Our second visit, this time with close family/friends. Cathedral was again beautiful and inspiring, but this time we thoroughly enjoyed the prayer garden and sculpture exhibit of the 14 Stations of the Cross missed on first visit.
