This Cathedral (Roman Catholic) and Christ Church Cathedral (Anglican and located on the NE corner of West Georgia and Burrard Streets) are magnificent structure (both are must sees). The two Cathedrals are within walking distance from each other.

I attend mass every weekend, sometime on Saturdays sometimes on Sundays. Good music, good sermons. Comfortable seats, good temperature in the summer.
