***Check back later in January 2017 for the debut of a Virtual Tour of the Cathedral of St. Matthew the Apostle featuring panoramic photographs of each of 11 areas of the Cathedral interior—the main entrance, the nave, the sanctuary, each of the six chapels, the baptistry, and the crypt. We look forward to sharing the tour with you.
