The glass is why most visitors come here-they are well worth a visit. Mass here is early which is great when you are travelling, the parishioners were friendly

We visited St Monica's for Sunday morning mass and were lucky enough to meet the bishop. The church is beautiful with its amazing sunglass windows. Something to see when in town

A lovely, tranquil place to visit. Stain glass windows were beautiful. Refreshing to experience the contemporary alongside the more traditional church features.

I was somewhat disappointed to find a modernised church with beautiful stained windows and décor rather than an old Gothic styled cathedral. t has interesting history and worth visiting during your stay in Cairns.

Definitely worth visiting for any visitor to Cairns. The building doesn't look like much from the exterior, but the interior has beautiful stained glass windows across three walls telling the story of creation. Well with a visit and photography is allowed.
