Fakten

  • Sacred Heart Cathedral is the fifth largest Cathedral in North America. It covers some 45,000 feet, comparable to Westminster Abbey.
  • Designed in a classic French Gothic style, it features a heavy use of stained glass, including three rose windows; vaulted ceilings; a variety of wood paneling; imported and domestic marble; and crystal, silver and bronze chandeliers.
  • The twin south towers are 232 feet tall, with the crossing tower rising somewhat higher.
  • The Cathedral's construction was first proposed in 1896. The cornerstone was laid in 1899, and the building was dedicated in 1954, replacing Saint Patrick's Pro Catholic Cathedral as seat of the Newark Diocese.
  • Sacred Heart Cathedral was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1976.
  • Pope John Paul II granted it minor basilica status during his visit to Newark in October 1995.
