Never been to a place where your whisper is amplified by the acoustics of the place. The cathedral made of wood is an amazing display of architectural genius and innovation. Located next to Lake Merit and next to the Oakland First Fridays.

This is a beautiful piece of architecture. If you are a religious Christian, why not take in a service? If not religious but just want to see a nice building, stop in if you are at Lake Merritt. It is walking distance from the Children's Fairyland. There is also a bus that Oakland runs up and down Broadway, and it would be walking distance from that.

Nice spot to check out the architecture. It is a stone's throw from Lake Merritt and Fairyland right on the outskirts of DT Oakland. The use of the teak wood and the visuals inside were gorgeous. Definitely worth passing through and spending 20-30 mins walking around (and more if you want to take in more spritually).

This Cathedral is also my parish. It's a beautiful space that is modern and contemporary, all while paying respect to traditions. The choir at the Sunday 10a.m. Mass is not to be missed. Spiritually uplifting.
