    APTNE Symposium

    St. Patrick's Cathedral Tour

    New York City, New York

    Saturday, February 7th, 2015

    9:00 am - 10:00 am

    9:30 am - 10:30 am

    As a follow-up to our paper sessions on Friday, we are offering a Behind the Scenes tour of the Restoration of St. Patrick's Cathedral on Saturday morning.  The tour will last about 45 minutes.

    St. Patrick’s Cathedral is a national treasure and an anchor for tourism in New York, a destination for more than 5.5 million visitors each year. The Cathedral, along with the Archbishop’s residence and the Parish House are designated as National Historic Landmarks. St. Patrick’s Cathedral is not just a church, it is an icon for the Catholic faith and a symbol of the ascendance of religious freedom and a palpable connection amongst all people.

    The two main restorations of the Cathedral were in 1949 and 1973 but this is the most extensive and essential restoration the Cathedral has ever undergone.

    The cornerstone of St. Patrick’s Cathedral was laid in 1858 and her doors swept open in 1879. It was over 150 years ago when Archbishop John Hughes announced his inspired ambition to build the “new” St. Patrick’s Cathedral.
