  • You can have time to pray for your family, for your trip in a calm and peaceful cathedral. You can also enjoy beautiful, colorful stained glass.

  • The basilica was beautiful inside and out. With meticulously manicured grounds. My wife chose this church for mass today (very well delivered homily), as it's our 40th anniversary today (we met and married here on Guam).And I was here when the pope visited. His statue is inside. Father Will when I asked for him to bless our marriage granted our wish with a small ceremony and blessed my wife's new ring. It was wonderful!!! Thank you all for making our day special!!
  • Had pretty much everything I was looking for. Also there was an available priest who blessed my items right after I purchased.
