Arrival & Check-In Information
- We recommend you arrive at the Cathedral before the performance, which starts at 7PM sharp. Because the church’s Mass service ends at 6PM, it is recommended you arrive no earlier than 6:15/30PM, so as to give our staff and volunteers enough time to set up check-in tables once the majority of Mass attendees have exited the Cathedral.
- The cathedral has two (2) main entrances at the front (east) side and one (1) handicapped-accessible entrance on the left (south) side for you to check-in at.
