The Diocese of Raleigh is excited to announce an important update regarding the Holy Name of Jesus Cathedral project. Grading work has been underway during the months since the groundbreaking ceremony in January 2015. Upon the completion of the architectural design on the project, and after a series of meetings with the City of Raleigh, a building permit was issued yesterday, July 30, 2015, for the construction of the Cathedral. This means that beginning next week, the balance of the site work and the beginning of the actual construction for the Cathedral will commence. Presuming all goes according to plan, we expect the Cathedral to be completed sometime in mid-2017.
The Diocese is grateful to the project architect, Mr. Jim O’Brien; the General Contractor, Clancy and Theys; our co-chairs, Mr. Tim Mann and Dr. Henry Zaytoun; and all of our benefactors, priests, religious, deacons, seminarians, and Catholic Center Staff. Their ongoing prayers, along with God’s grace, have allowed us to proceed to the final phase of this project. We look forward to providing further updates as the project continues to move forward.
