Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul
This beautiful cathedral is the centerpiece of one of the largest Catholic populations in North America. The foundation was dedicated June 29, 1846 and construction was finished in 1864. The Italian Renaissance style, with its beautiful baldachino dome over the altar, is a prime example of the style of the time. This is the oldest building on the Parkway-which makes sense, since the Parkway was not constructed until 1925.
I was fortunate enough to be married in this beautiful church. To see my family gathered in it was a blessing. Thanks God for having man create such a beautiful church. This Basilica has a huge and great pipe organ and the Father was awesome and kind. When in Philly go in and pray for mankind and the beauty God enabled us to create.
A scene from one of the early Rocky movies is shot here when Rocky asks the Father for his blessings. The Art Museum is right down the boulevard and so is the United States third largest city park which contains the "Thinking man" sculpture by Rodan. The Basilica is just off City Center and not far from the Liberty Bell.
This is my home. I love the Basilica and all of it's beauty. You have to experience it to know the feeling. I cry at every mass I attend in the Cathedral. It is a truely over whelming experience. You feel so welcome when you enter through the doors. God is there. God Bless this beautiful home of worship that God has given us.
