I find this church to be very beautiful. It has a nice mosaic of different scenes from the Bible. Even though I do not practice this denomination of Christianity I can still admire the care and attention that went into designing it.

Always cheers me up to be at a mass or an event at the wonderful St Francis cathedral. Monsignor Bob orchestrates a beautifully run church

The architecture both inside and outside is worth the visit. It's the perfect place to sit and meditate for a while and I understand the services are excellent.

Another beautiful cathedral in the NJ area. So happy we opted to visit churches in this trip. Solemn and peaceful place for personal reflection. Kneel a moment and say a little prayer.
