Visited my dad's niche. Serene peaceful environment. Open to all faiths which is a good thing. Helpful director who took time to talk to the grieving. Used to be Crystal Cathedral when Robert Schuller was alive. Now under the Catholic church and undergoing major renovations.

Visited with a docent and learned the wonderful history of the Cathedral, from Robert Schuiller’s Initial mission, to the building of a successful Christian tele-evangelist empire, and the more recent acquisition by the Catholic Church. Each building on the campus has fascinating architectural history. Definitely...More

I don't know the answer to that, if you type in Christ Cathedral Campus, you will find their daily schedule and the times for different languages. I hope this helps, it's a joy to go there!
