Nice Pipes

Usually when we think of pipes in the Cathedral, we imagine the nearly 3000 pipes in our 54-rank Austin Pipe Organ.

Today, we have some new pipes. No, they're not musical, but they are an important addition to keep our Cathedral safe.

This photo shows the space in the Cathedral basement where the water supply from the city of Tulsa meets our fire suppression system. This equipment pushes water into the hundreds or thousands of feet of pipe leading to the sprinkler heads in the Cathedral, the Sacristy, and the many rooms in the basement.

Video Tour of the Cathedral

This isn't so much a "Renovation Update" as a view of what Holy Family looks like today. As the renovation proceeds, I might have to reshoot much of the video.

Later on, I will make another video so we can "take a tour" of the outside of the Cathedral.

I thank Cathy Nelson, the brave photographer who rode a crane up to the clerestory to get those amazing photos. I am forever indebted to Janie Thomas for equalizing the color in the photos I took of the main windows.
