Backstage with the Bishop


Restore and Renew, a $10 Million campaign for Holy Name Cathedral in Chicago has kicked off and is making great progress.

Reverend Dan Mayall, Pastor of Holy Name Cathedral and Most Reverend Timothy J. Lyne, Auxillary Bishop of Chicago, along with hosts Keith and Mary Armato cordially invite readers of and contributors to the Society of St. Barbara to learn more about the "Friends of the Cathedral", a group dedicated to the effort to preserve and restore the Cathedral for future generations.

Please email me at the Society of St. Barbara (or just show up) May 20 at 3PM at the Cathedral for "Backstage with the Bishop" a one of a kind presentation and tour of Holy Name Cathedral with Bishop Timothy J. Lyme. Reception, Cocktails, Hors D'oeuvres, and Mass.
The Catholic Renaissance continues in Chicago.

Isn't this throwing good money after bad? I wouldn't give the project a dime until someone realizes that the destruction of the interior in the late 60s renovation is what really needs to be addressed. What the cathedral needs is a decent altar, better stained glass windows, removal of the bronze ooze side altars, and a restoration of an interior aesthetic proper to a 19th century building.

Sounds great. Come on down to the meeting!

Present your plans in a pleasant way, and lets make this happen.
