By STAFF     11/16/2017

More scaffolding is being constructed in the interior of Christ Cathedral in order to begin the installation of the specially designed quatrefoils, the “petals” that will make up the shading system for the cathedral.

Work continues on the undercroft. The public areas of the undercroft will be accessed from the east entry and down the stairs from the cathedral. The public zone of the undercroft will feel somewhat austere and of the earth, supporting the cathedral above. Built as part of the first phase, the Bride’s Room and Family Room will be located near the restrooms serving the entire building. Also included will be the major support spaces for the cathedral, including the vesting sacristies, work sacristy, choir practice room and multi-purpose room. Additionally on this level, future phases will include the Chapel of St. Callistus, the Bishop’s Crypts and Columbarium.
