Holy Name Cathedral Back From the Ashes 3 Yrs Ago Brings In Easter Faithful

Click here for the fire history which closed the cathedral for the past three years as the attic caught fire while being repaired, which is pictured below in the story I attached about today's much awaited and prayed for re opening.

Holy Name's re-opening draws an Easter crowd 

Chicago Breaking News: "For the first time in three years, thousands of parishioners returned Sunday to the Holy Name Cathedral to celebrate Easter service.

The 135-year old cathedral, the storied seat of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Chicago, closed when a fire erupted in the attic in February 2009. The blaze came after the building already had shuttered its doors for structural repairs.

On Sunday, parishioners and visitors stood in a line that circled the downtown Chicago cathedral as they awaited services. The crowd spilled onto the church's front steps during the 11 a.m. service.

The Rev. Dan Mayall said he'd never seen such a turnout in his eight years as pastor.

'This church has come back from a long, hard time. But we have our parishioners here, we have people from all over Chicagoland, from all over the U.S., from all over the world,' Mayall said.

The Gothic Revival cathedral holds 1,100 people. Mayall estimated the crowd hit 1,500 during many of the six services held on Easter Sunday."


The urge to save humanity is always a false front for the urge to rule it. H. L. Mencken
