Bishop Callahan’s Thank You for the support of the Cathedral

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

May the Lord give you peace.


The restoration of the Cathedral of St. Joseph is progressing well and it is anticipated that the work will reach completion this Fall.  I hope that you have taken an opportunity to view the Cathedral’s website where they have provided updates on the construction, as well as live construction cams, allowing all to join in the excitement of bringing our Cathedral back to its glory. This work could never have been recognized had it not been for the support of all of you.  The Christ Our Cornerstone campaign kicked off with a target goal of $6.1M in January 2021 and I am extremely pleased to share that 143 parishes participated, with over 2200 donors, reaching the target goal.  I extend my sincere appreciation to all who carried out this work through your participation, pledge payments and prayers. .  It is through the  generosity of the faithful that we have been able to preserve our beloved Mother Church for generations to come.  I ask that you take a moment and watch this video message.
