local stuff...

... the Raleigh diocese is getting a new cathedral, Holy Name of Jesus Cathedral.



And the Pontifical College Jospehinum has begun wearing the Propaganda Cassock on special occasions. OK, so neither of these institutions is local, but I came of the news via a local seminarian attending Josephinum. So it counts. Sort of. Anyway, the cassocks look like this;

Our dear friend, Stephen is a seminarian up at the PCJ and posted a picture of himself in his propaganda cassock this morning. :)

My husband studied for a bit at the PCJ, so we have a special place for it in our hearts.

Interesting cassock design- looks vaguely Russian. I half expect them to reveal bright red leather boots underneath!

Raleigh's cathedral looks like a .........cathedral.

{gasp}

No "church-in-the-round"?

I'll bet there's a .....CRUCIFIX in the sanctuary. ARGH!!! Maybe even a Tabernacle on the central axis?!?! GAH!!

Seriously, people will fork out cash for this type of construction instead of the Vosko-crap you see out there.

I know, isn't it great? Good things are coming out of NC. Burbidge and Jugis are quite the Dynamic Duo.

AAhh it looks so beautiful!! I am so happy to be in this diocese. Now if only I could find a parish where the attendees are going to attend MASS and not Sunday Social Hour, I will be happy.
