Saints Peter & Paul Church

TIME : 2016/2/18 11:30:53

Wedding-cake cravings are inspired by this frosted white, triple-decker 1924 cathedral. The church holds Catholic masses in Italian, Chinese, Latin and English and pulls triple wedding shifts on Saturdays – Joe DiMaggio and Marilyn Monroe took wedding photos here, but they weren't permitted to marry in the church as divorcés (they got hitched at City Hall). The mosaic Dante quote over the entryway evokes Beat poets and Beatles: 'The glory of Him who moves all things/Penetrates and glows throughout the universe.'
