  • Great ceiling and dome from both inside and out. Reminiscent of St Peter's in Rome. Incense from a recent service still wafting around added to the atmosphere.

  • Truly beautiful and the scale of this place blows your mind. The architecture, the paintings, the carvings. There is so much to see it was well worth an hour enjoy.

  • The cathedral is really very impressive . It has several naves. The security reminded my to not take photos or walk around during the worship service. He was outstanding, friendly. It is not packed, but worth a visit. I recommend a visit if you are in Montreal. The entrance is free, but I they prepared to take a donation for those in need. I really enjoyed my visit - thanks a lot
  • My first ever Cathedral that I have ever been too, wow what a fantastic sight. I wouldn’t believe how amazing it looked from the outside but it’s so beautiful inside. I visited Mary, Queen of the World Cathedral in January 2019 and it was amazing, the architecture was lovely, it was nice and relaxing being here, would highly recommend people coming here for something enjoyable and free to do.
