The Faithful Traveler in the United States: East Coast Shrines
East Coast Shrines: St Patrick’s Cathedral, Part 2
Episode 12 • 29m
St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City is an oasis of calm and faith in the heart of one of the loudest and most congested cities in the country. Even though it is surely the most visited church in Manhattan, you can still find a quiet chapel to pray and and come closer to God. In the final two episodes of the series, Diana takes you on a whirlwind tour of this renowned cathedral, and helps viewers understand what it took to get the cathedral built, and what it means to Catholics around the world. She interviews Monsignor Thomas J. Shelley, professor of history at Fordham University, who discusses the impact that New York’s first Archbishop, John Hughes, had on the city, and how he helped make this landmark a cathedral of suitable magnificence.
