St. Patrick Cathedral
This building, designed by James J. Kane in the Gothic Revival style, has been in use since its completion in 1892. It features stunning hand-painted stained glass windows, which came over from Munich the year of the church's dedication. The church's bell was cast in 1889. Though damaged by the recent tornadoes that ripped through much of downtown Fort Worth, St. Patrick Cathedral still holds mass twice daily for the faithful. It was entered into the National Register of Historic Places in 1908.
Truly a beautiful church. As many Catholics I sat in the last row. In almost every Parish I've experienced, the "Good ol' Boys" account for many of the Ushers. And their relationship it one another has not gone unnoticed. At Saint Patrick however the fellowship was an annoyance as they talked and chuckled throughout most of the Mass. It would have been best for them to respect the service with appropriate silence or at least gone elsewhere to continue their chit-chat. BTW the date is uncertain. I wonder if the new Pastor has altered the bad behavior?
This is the most traditional church in Fort Worth and has a long and interesting history since 1888. Historical markers on the grounds explain its history. Several religous antiquities within the Cathedral and the most awe-inspiring stain glass windows.
I love to attend mass at this Cathedral. Very traditional. If you are looking for a church to visit when in town or on Holiday, this is a wonderful place to worship and take communion. They have open communion for all believers, so don't hesitate if you are not Catholic. Just enjoy.
