“An art & architectural monument”

Building the Cathedral was the dream of the Most Reverend Camillus Paul Maes, third Bishop of the Diocese of Covington. The project began in 1894 and ended in 1915, incomplete. Though largely unfinished even today, the Cathedral is a monument which speaks of the faith and determination of the Bishop and the community. It is an art and architectural monument to be treasured for centuries by people everywhere. What Makes the Cathedral a Basilica? Traditionally, churches attained the title of basilica because of their antiquity, dignity, historical importance, or significance as centers of worship.

Beautiful church. Usually empty so if you need a moment of respite, it's the perfect place. They have one or two masses everyday, I know one at 11 a.m. every day of the week.

Beautiful architecture as we were just driving through an older part of town, and it was sunset, and there it was, this is a beautiful building.
