Apparently, you cannot enter this church. We went on a Monday afternoon at 1:30 at it was totally locked up. Website shows mass times but they are held in a modern chapel. No idea how you see the church, itself.

Whenever we're there on the weekend, we attend mass at this Cathedral. It is right in the middle of all the Biloxi casinos and they will have a mass schedule suitable to any time frame.

You don't want to miss a visit to this beautiful gothic inspired cathedral. The breathtaking interior is adorned with stained glass windows that reach to the ceiling, This is a must see if you are interested in art and architecture.

The church itself is gorgeous. The stained glass exquisite so even if you just stop by to look at the Church, it’s worth it. Mass was very reverent and traditional. Will definitely attend there in the future when we are in Biloxi.

while on vacation went to mass here, the priest who was very young gave a great homily. Even though this was my first time here i felt right at home. The stained glass windows are amazing.

The Cathedral of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary (BVM), on Howard St in Biloxi, is the first Catholic Church, which I can recall visiting. I grew up in Gulfport, just a few miles to the west of Biloxi, and neither of my parents...More

Lovely stained glass windows in this church, reminiscent of European churches. The Deacon is made my husband and I feel very welcomed for mass. You do not have to be Catholic to enjoy the beauty of this church.

I would suggest calling the church office at (228) 374-1717. They are very nice and they can give you the correct times so you will not run into a funeral mass or some other event that would hinder your tour.
