Standing right in the heart of Newark city, this beautiful cathedral will definitely grab your eyes as you wander around the city. It is not only because of its religious significance that the church has gained so much popularity. Its architectural work deserves credit too! Its French Gothic Revival style is the one responsible for such brilliant artwork. Previously the church was built in English-Irish Gothic style. But later on it was transformed to its present style.

Today, the cathedral has turned into one of the important sites for both religious believers and tourists. From religious point of view, the locals believe that the cathedral’s location marks that Lord Jesus is always looking after his people. From tourist point of view, the striking beauty of the cathedral is unmissable.
