This is a humble but beautiful Catholic Church which was a great place for prayer. The wooded artwork was beautiful - a beautiful simplicity. Do come here if you visit Phoenix!

Stopped by the historic Basilica while attending a conference at the Phoenix Convention Center, across the street.

We were in town for an event at the Convention Center and went to Sunday mass at the Basilica. The exterior and interior are beautiful, with gorgeous stained glass and stations of the cross. The mass lasted almost exactly an hour, which is 10-15 minutes...More
