Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart Newark Reviews
Beautiful Cathedral in Newark Jun 04, 2011
Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart is a large, historic Cathedral in Newark’s Forest Hill section. It is located immediately outside of the eastern section of Branch Brook Park.
The Cathedral is the fifth largest in the United States, nearly 54 years in the making (from 1899) and has a very impressive exterior and interior. I knew about the Cathedral, but had never gotten close enough to see what it was all about.
I visited the Cathedral on a Sunday and was able to easily gain access, take photographs and explore the Cathedral as there was no formal activity inside.
The Cathedral was host to the inauguration mass of then-incoming and current Governor Chris Christie.
If you are in Newark, be sure to visit the Cathedral.
