Interior, looking into the north side aisle; Grace Cathedral is an Episcopal cathedral located on Nob Hill in San Francisco, California. It is the cathedral church of the Episcopal Diocese of California. The Cathedral has become an international pilgrimage center for church-goer and visitor alike, famed for its replica of Ghiberti's Gates of Paradise, two labyrinths, varied stained glass windows, Keith Haring AIDS Chapel altarpiece, and medieval and contemporary furnishings, as well as its 44 bell carillon, three organs, and choirs. A cathedral design by English architect George Bodley was considered. Bodley's sudden death led to a revised design by his partner Cecil Hare. In 1910, local architect Lewis P. Hobart was chosen to succeed Cecil Hare as cathedral architect. Source: Wikipedia; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page (accessed 2/10/2008)
