Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart

French-gothic design and heavy stone facades make Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart a towering monument to faith.

First proposed by Newark's first bishop in 1859, the cathedral's cornerstone was finally set forty years later. It wasn't until 1954 that the church was completed and consecrated as a "monument of faith". Pope John Paul II visited this gargantuan French-gothic cathedral in 1995, performing an evening prayer that earned the cathedral the rank of basilica. The Cathedral Basilica regularly holds concerts that are open to the public, played on the largest pipe organ ever created by the Schantz Organ Company.
