According to a city of Chicago website, the church received its initial funding from Tsar Nicholas II of Russia and is said to resemble Russian provincial churches. Many octagonal elements were used in the design of the cathedral, and the dome rising from the church's center is eight-sided. Murals and wood carvings have been added to the church by Yuri O. Skorupsky, a Ukrainian-born artist and wood carver who now lives in America.
