I attended mass here with my family quite often when I was young. It's been well over 10 years since I was last here. As I stood on the front steps today, a small part of my childhood came back to me. Yet at the same time, I couldn't believe how unfamiliar it felt.
I've always admired Gothic cathedral architecture. St. James Cathedral is the seat of the archbishop of the Catholic Archdiocese of Seattle. It's construction began in 1905.
