The Previous Priests of the Cathedral of the Risen Christ

A Cathedral is the place where feasts are celebrated, new priests are ordained, the installation of bishops takes place, the holy oils are consecrated, and the relics of saints reside.

The Cathedral of the Risen Christ was completed in 1965 during the reign of the Most Reverend James V. Casey, Bishop of Lincoln.

All things in this cathedral – windows, art work, statuary – announce, as did the angel on Easter: β€œHe has risen even as He said. Alleluia!”
