This was our parish church for more than ten years. We regularly volunteered to greet visitors from all over the world who stopped in to see the amazing stained glass windows, the mosaics and murals.
Oh my goodness! I went to a wedding here last Saturday night. The whole time instead of watching the Bride and Groom, I'm checking out the church! It reminded me of a miniature Notre Dame. It was breath taking! What an incredible place for a wedding! A photographers dream!
Boy....those Catholics sure know how to build MAGNIFICENT churches! Breathtaking stain glass, 3 organs, baptism area and beautiful wooden sanctuary. You could spend hours in there. Very peaceful and calm. May want to call first-we just barely made it in to see since we arrived at noon and they had a wedding at 1:00p. Definitely a must see.
This amazing church can rival any European cathedral in beauty. From the gargoyles on the Gothic exterior to the hundreds of stained glass windows to the mosaic stations of the cross, the interior is a marvel. A guide is on hand to welcome visitors and assist your self-guided tour.
There is no other church in small-town America that comes as close to European grandeur as Covington's Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption. The windows, stonework, marble, all beautifully crafted. If you're lucky, you'll meet the wonderful bishop.
I just got back from Europe. I saw many churches there. The stained glass window in the Basilica is just as beautiful as the ones in Europe. You can also get a tour if that interests you.
Definitely worth a pop in if you're in the area just to see the beautiful stained glass here. Been to a lot of churches around the world and I think this is one of the most stained glass-ed ones I've ever been in...great to sit quietly and admire on a sunny day when you'll be surrounded by light and color.
The church is gorgeous and we'll taken care of. Lots of information is available from the host at the information desk. St. Mary's is also visible from many places around the city. Wonderful location for weddings. Munich style stained glass windows are unique.
