Green Bay Cathedral restoration continues, says Fr. Dorner

“The resources of this parish of 530 units were tapped out,” he explained. “We decided to go to the diocese for help. The roof was bad and we were starting to see some (exterior) bricks fall. The response from the diocese was, ‘Why don’t you make a list from top to bottom?’ This is a one-time appeal to the diocese. We put together this whole list of items we would like to get done to get ready for the (diocesan) sesquicentennial in 2018.” (The Diocese of Green Bay will mark the 150th anniversary of its establishment in 2018.)

In addition to the roof and brick restoration, which are now complete, the list includes a new sound system, heating and air conditioning upgrades, sacristy remodeling, mural restoration, bell repair, floor replacement and refinished pews with new cushions.
