  • At St. James Catholic Cathedral, the surroundings are grandiose but the atmosphere is so conducive to the deepest connection between your yearning soul and your Omnipotent Creator that you will want to constantly remain here in prayer. The Corpus Christi Sunday Sacramental procession was amazing and included different groups of the diocese. The Eucharist transcended our ethnic backgrounds and brought us together in love and adoration.
  • Lovely church for prayer and church mass. It is always full for mass but you can visit any other time for prayer and it's a beautiful church. They also have a little store on site with reasonable prices.
