Cathedral Center Ground-Breaking

Ground-Breaking on Sunday, August 3, 1980, three days before the Feast of the Transfiguration of Our Lord, officially marked the beginning of the construction of our new Cathedral Center. Metropolitan Archbishop Stephen J. Kocisko, D.D., officiated a Pontifical Divine Liturgy in St. John's Cathedral at 11:30 am, asking for God's guidance upon the work undertaken. Following the Divine Liturgy, the official ground breaking took place at 1:15 pm on the site of the future center.
