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.

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.
