Status Update: Holy Name Cathedral

Although masses are mostly back on schedule at Holy Name Cathedral, the roof repairs continue after last February’s fire, and the ceiling collapse almost exactly one year earlier.

Inside, the cathedral is absolutely beautiful and has never looked better.  It’s a glorious place for a wedding, and I should know since I got married there a couple of weeks ago.  If you haven’t been inside, now’s the time to go.  The gift shop is gone, but it’s still an amazing space to sit and watch and wonder.
