The Cathedral is built in the traditional Byzantine style of architecture, which dates back to the sixth century, A.D. The central shape reflects a Greek-style cross, whose arms are of equal length.
A great deal of symbolism exists within the architecture of the Cathedral. Everything one sees has a special meaning and purpose. It is the embodiment of the Orthodox heritage and it serves as a constant reminder of our living Orthodox tradition. As one journeys through the architecture and art of the Cathedral, he/she can perceive much about the Orthodox faith and on the relationship that exists between God and man.
Even in this short journey through the Cathedral, it should be clearly evident that everything one sees within an Orthodox church is there to serve as an aid in our Orthodox worship of God, to serve as a constant reminder of our Orthodox Christian heritage and tradition, and to help us understand and comprehend the message and truth taught to us by Christ and the Apostles.
“Ask and it shall be given you; seek and you shall find; knock and it shall be opened to you; For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.” [Matthew 7:7-8]
