Its towers soar 323 feet, and the cathedral covers some 45,000 square feet, comparable to Westminster Abbey. 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. This cathedral is the 5th largest in North America, and has been visiting by Pope John Paul II and featured on the HBO television series, Sopranos.
