All the woodwork in the Sanctuary is English bog oak carved by forty-five Bavarian craftsmen. No two carvings are alike on the thirty-two pews, the ornate pulpit, the organ pipe cases, the choir screen or the doors.
In the rafters above the pews are ten wooden Angels covered in beaten gold. Each ten foot high Angel holds articles and bear inscriptions symbolizing ten attributes of the intellectual life.
The South entrance has twelve bronze symbols of the Zodiac inlaid in the marble floor.
