Views from the Pews

On March 6 and 27 and April 4 and 10, the Catholic Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Albany NY held education/information meetings on various aspects relating to the restoration/renovation of the Cathedral interior. In addition to the presentations and question/answer sessions, attendees were asked to write responses to three questions:

1. What do you like most about the cathedral?
2. What do you dislike most about the cathedral?
3. What is most important to you personally?

The questions were not related to any proposal or plan of restoration/renovation, since none was presented at the meetings.

The responses were compiled, and the results of the compilation were presented as an insert to the parish bulletin for May 7, 2006. The insert was in the form of a memo from the rector of the cathedral, Father William H. Pape, to the cathedral parishioners. The memo, including the responses in a more simplified format, can be read here.

The Interior Committee appointed by Bishop Howard Hubbard will meet on June 19, when it is expected to present Bishop Howard Hubbard with a final plan and estimate.
