Manhattan : St. Patrick's Cathedral

Manhattan : St. Patrick's Cathedral
The eight past cardinals, of the cathedral are laid to rest there. Four of the Cardinals' galeros are located high above the back of the sanctuary. Cardinal Spellman's galero was also worn by Pope Pius XII when he was Cardinal. John Cardinal O'Connor had Toussaint's remains moved from the old cemetery of St. Patrick to the crypt below the main altar of the present St. Patrick's Cathedral. The process of canonization of Pierre Toussaint is underway.
Archbishop Cardinals Spellman and Terence Cooke, are also buried in the crypt, along with Msgr. Michael J. Lelle, rector of the cathedral in the 1900s. Unverified, Lavelle is possibly entombed there as well. Also buried there are two other candidates for canonization...Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen and Terrance Cardinal Cooke, both of whom are now declared "Servant of God".
Some notable people whose funeral Masses were said at the cathedral include New York Yankee greats Babe Ruth and Billy Martin, legendary football coach and Fordham University alumnus Vince Lombardi, singer Celia Cruz, United States Senator from New York Robert F. Kennedy, and New York Giants owner Wellington Mara. Special memorial Masses were held at St. Patrick's following the deaths of Andy Warhol, Joe DiMaggio, and author William F. Buckley, Jr..
