  • I was able to attend daily mass at St. Joseph, a lovely Mission Revival cathedral. The interior is relatively simple, but warm and welcoming. It's a pretty easy walk from almost anywhere in Downtown.....  more

  • As we approached it looked increasingly magnificent, gleaming white in the brilliant morning sunshine. A fine belfry soars heavenwards complimenting other decorative features. Grand red steps lead...

  • I attended Mass here while in San Diego for a conference. It's a bit of a hike from the Convention Center, but it's worth the walk. The music was beautiful and varied, including traditional hymns and more modern tunes, such as a high-energy jazz Gloria. Best of all, the people were welcoming, even to a stranger clearly from out of town.
  • Father Peter gives thunderous homilies. I like the cantor at the 10:30 Mass. Father Peter prayed over my dog and she is not in pain any more.
