I was in Branch Brook Psark yesterday. After walking through this extensive park we drovw to the end to see the fountain area. I saw this Cathedral sitting majestically high up a hill I thought with iflags flying from ts spires it looked like something out of King Arthur's Court.

Great building, condusive to worship. Great choir, especially during the Holy Week. I always go on Good Friday night when they sing a capella. On Wednesday there are concerts.

Simply. If you are in Newark then you have to see this cathedral! It's not easy to get there from downtown (I used public bus) and it's not easy to find right doors but it's definitely worth seeing.

This magnificent building is simply beautiful . The interior is neogothic with tall walls of the main nave. Looks great when all lit up, very distinctive. It is one of the largest cathedrals in US. It makes it also for a very beautiful landmark on the skyline of Newark.

The Pope has visited. This is as close to the "old world" Cathedrals as it gets. It is a working church however, not just a sight seeing destination. Having said that, you will find the care takers warm, informative, and inviting. It is a long look. Be respectful, but look, walk around. Pick out the Stations of the Cross. Admire the stained glass. Examine the stone workmanship. Walk around the outside also. It is what it is suppose to be.
