    Saint Patrick's Basilica

    Although this Basilica is not much of a tourist spot, the edifice catches my attention while I was doing my own walking tour within the downtown core. This is the home church frequently visited by citizens of Irish catholic. It also became a quiet shelter for local people to have a little peace even for a short period of time. The church was built in 1847 with Gothic structure and has been extensively restored through the years. I was so attracted with the altar lamp with angels and the wonderful stained glass which are some of its notable decor. Come visit Saint Patrick's Basilica! It is an experience you will never forget.

    The St. Patrick’s Basilica was built in 1847. The Architect of St. Patrick’s was P.L. Morin. The Vatican raised the status of this church to Basilica on March 17, 1989. The building is 233 ft. long by 105 ft. wide and the steeple is 228 ft. high. Inside, floor to ceiling it is 85 ft. There are 150 oil-painted figures of the saints. The 14 stations of the Way of the Cross are in the wainscoting. There are beautiful stained glass windows throughout. Notice the dominance of the Irish motifs.
    This is one of the few churches that has Mass in English.
