Since the Groundbreaking
On January 3, 2015, hundreds of Diocesan faithful gathered on the Nazareth property for the blessing and groundbreaking of the site for the future Holy Name of Jesus Cathedral. Since then, work has begun on clearing and grading the site in preparation for building.
The next phase is expected this summer, when workers will begin to construct the concrete footings for the church building.
Fruits of the Cathedral Campaign
As the Cathedral comes closer and closer to a reality, other projects enabled by the Cathedral Campaign are also coming to fruition. Over $30 million was pledged in the campaign for parish and local needs, as well as for charitable and pastoral initiatives. Those pledges were also designated to fund the 2013 Bishop’s Annual Appeal, which provides for a wide range of services like Catholic Charities, seminarian education, Catholic education, youth ministry, and much more.
