HomeOur ParishCathedral Tour › Altar


The Altar of God, the central reason for the Cathedral's existence stands four steps above the floor so that the sacred liturgy can be seen and heard from all corners of the Cathedral.  It is made of marble, quarried in Italy. The edge of the altar top is embellished with a pattern of wheat and grapes.

The flooring of the Sanctuary is of  Botticino marble and a floor mosaic surrounds the Altar itself. 

Directly below the central portion of the holy table, a wooden reliquary holds the Cathedral's four relics, those of St. Agnes, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, St. John Neumann and St. Frances Xavier Cabrini
