The Diocese of St. Petersburg Fl. St. Jude The Apostle Cathedral is in a residential neighborhood of St. Petersburg rather than the largest city, Tampa. The interior is currently being renovated. It is a 1970's building to the core....IMO not the best cathedral our diocese could have. The renovation is much nicer, but still not what I prefer in a church.

Old Interior:

A more classical church in Tampa, Parish of the Sacred Heart:

Absolutely. The main facade of Washington National Cathedral is almost an exact replica of Canterbury Cathedral - nothing wrong with that,of course, Washington is a beautiful city and deserves buildings of this quality.
