A new Cathedral church in the city of Newark was proposed by Bishop Bayley in 1859. Land for the church was acquired in 1871. The project was finally started in 1881.
The church was originally conceived in the English-Irish Gothic style. Physical dimensions were determined as the cathedral is today -- length, three hundred sixty-five feet and nave width fifty feet.
Construction began in January, 1898 and progressed rapidly.. The cornerstone was laid on June 11, 1899. More than fifty thousand people observed the parade to the Cathedral site and over one hundred thousand gathered to watch the ceremony.
By April 1902, the walls stood fifty feet at the nave and ambulatory locations and work on the front towers had begun. However, a dangerous shift in the position of the columns was observed in 1908 and construction was halted. Twenty-two of the original pillars had to be removed and reset.
In 1913 the design was changed to French Gothic and the towers were shortened to the current height. Plate glass was installed in all the windows in 1924 and the outside of the Cathedral was structurally finished.
Construction proceeded slowly but Bishop Thomas Joseph Walsh decided to use the church. On May 1, 1928, even though unfinished, for public worship. And so plans were Cathedral on May l, 1928 a close to four thousand people attended his installation.
In 1950 a Cathedral Builders' Association was formed to raise five million dollars to finish construction. In 1953 marble floors were laid throughout the church, heating and ventilating systems were installed and stained glass finished. On October 19, 1954, the Cathedral was dedicated. On December 22nd 1995 the Cathedral was designated a minor basilica.
