About St Mary's Cathedral

St Mary's Cathedral is located at the corner of College Street and Prince Albert Road, across from Hyde Park. It's the site of the Archbishop of Sydney, also called the Mother Church of Australian Catholicism. The double towers of the cathedral are emblematic of Sydney. The cathedral is built using local sandstone. The gothic architectural style of the steeple arches inherited the air of European Middle Ages cathedrals. The cathedral crypt's mosaic floor by Father Melocco is made out of colorful pebbles on the theme of Genesis, with exquisite craftsmanship.

    St. Mary's Cathedral in Sydney is the largest symbolic traffic in Sydney. Its architectural form is typical of the British Barot Wind. It looks very elegant. It is very similar to London Cathedral in England. The church is very broad, the pillars on both sides of the complex sculpture, appears very sacred and solemn, the square outside the church is also very large, is a good place to meet friends in peacetime.

    St. Mary's Cathedral, Sydney, is a quiet place to pray. There are many cultural monuments worth visiting. Next to Hyde Park, across the road, you can see the top of the spire from afar and sit quietly.

    I went to Australia for 19 days freely, deeply in love with free travel, go where I want to go. For the first time, I went into a church abroad and closed the door. There were a few people praying, especially quiet, walking gently, afraid of disturbing others, being shocked by various sculptures and murals in the church. I always hoped that I could hold my own wedding in the church in the future.

    St Mary s Cathedral, or St Mary's Cathedral, is the Cathedral of the Catholic Church of Sydney, so it should be called a cathedral, not a church; only where the bishop is located can it be called a cathedral. The church is a Gothic building with a magnificent exterior and solemn interior. When we enter the church, we are shocked and stunned by the architectural design. Even if they have different beliefs, they will be inspired to be pious. Saint Mary's Cathedral was declared a secondary Temple by Pope Pius XI in 1930. It honors the patron saint of Australia who will always help the Virgin Mary. It is also Australia's largest church, but not the highest church. Located on the high-rise College Street in downtown Sydney, the first Notre Dame Church was founded in 1821 and destroyed by fire in 1865. Temporary wooden churches were also destroyed by fire in 1869. Since then, the Gothic Revival Church of the 19th century has been built.

Halloween, also known as All Saints'Day, is a traditional Western Festival on November 1, and October 31, the eve of Halloween, is the most lively time of the festival. In order to celebrate Halloween, children dress up as lovely ghosts and knock on the door door from house to house, asking for candy, otherwise they will make trouble. At the same time, it is said that on this night, all kinds of ghosts will dress up as children and join the crowd to celebrate the coming of Halloween, while human beings dress up as ghosts in order to make them more harmonious. At the weekend, there is a Halloween parade in Sydney's St. Mary's Square and Hyde Park. People make up all kinds of shapes. Although the shapes are horrible, they are not afraid at all. The atmosphere of joy is very strong, singing and dancing, and from time to time there are bursts of laughter and screams, which lead the parade to a climax.

    St. Mary's Church in Sydney is close to Sydney Sky Tower and can be reached on foot. The church building is old and magnificent. Its contents are more dazzling. The church is large and there are many seats for worship. Tourists can visit it free of charge. But don't disturb the worshippers. It's really worth visiting. It seems that there is a donation box. I don't have any donations, so I don't remember it completely. Weekly comments, there is a park across the street, where many people play.
