New Catholic Cathedral Opens In Raleigh

(North Carolina News Network)–The first Catholic Cathedral to be built in the south in more than 100 years opened its doors in Raleigh Wednesday. The Holy Name of Jesus Cathedral holds some 2,000 people and will serve Catholics in 54 North Carolina counties. Bishop Michael Burbage served in Raleigh when the project started some eight years and spoke at the dedication saying this building will house blessings to many.  The main architectural feature of the cathedral is the 162-ton copper dome, which rises 164 feet from the floor of the cathedral and is positioned directly over the altar. The dome can be seen from many places downtown and across west Raleigh.
