In the last three weeks, amazing progress has been made in the Cathedral.  On January 13, the renovation began with the removal of the black slate from the sanctuary (to be relocated to the ambulatory), the preparation of the transept walls for the new shrine areas, and the removal of the central tabernacle for restoration.
