Cathedral of Saint Mary of the Assumption
The interior of this ultra-modern Catholic church is sleek, spare and remarkably intimate, considering that it seats 2,400 people in a semi-circle around the altar. The central dome of Cathedral of Saint Mary of the Assumption soars 15 stories into the air and is supported by buttresses that have been incorporated into each of the four corners of the building's interior. The corner walls beyond them are floor-to-ceiling plate glass. This effect gives the building the feeling of somehow being lighter than air for all its masses.
The lady who works at the welcome desk was really rude to tourists and complained about all the people there only wanted to use bathroom. Basically, she was complaining in the public and banging on the desk to tell everyone to be quiet in front of all the tourists. You can see how unprofessional she is and how bad the church's administration. They even put up a sign saying "Be Quiet" in Chinese, only Chinese and didn't have other languages. I thought that was very racist. I'm very disappointed at this Cathedral. The first time I saw a church was being racist in California. As a Christian, I feel shame on Cathedral of St Mary of the Assumption. Please don't open to the tourists if they don't want to deal with tourists.
Dubbed by San Franciscans "St. Mary Maytag" because of its resemblance to a washing machine agitator, this modern cathedral is stunning on the inside, and well worth a peek. There are great concerts here as well.
