A Gift Begins the Journey
With the gift of the Raredos from Holy Trinity Church in South Boston our efforts to restore the Cathedral to the grandeur forseen by its architect Patrick Keely begins.
Prior to 1969 St. Joseph Cathedral had such a Reredos in marble but it was destroyed in the 1969 renovations. What makes this gift so providential is that the same Architect, Patrick Keely, designed both St. Joseph Cathedral, and Holy Trinity Church in Boston, and as many who have watched the restoration have observed "it is a perfect fit."
This is just the first of many restoration steps that our Cathedral will be undertaking in coming months and years. Soon to follow will be the addition of Stations of the Cross - also a gift from Holy Trinity.
Your help is essential for the continued restoration of the Cathedral to its original architectual splendor, giving us a beautiful, yet reverent place to worship as the Mother Church for the Diocese of Manchester.
