Green Carpet & Marble Tiles

The new carpet is an olive green similar to the green paint on the lower walls of the nave. Installers will begin laying it this afternoon.

In the center of the church, workers are laying marble tile similar to what is in the sanctuary.

Cathedral's Red Carpet is being removed

An entire generation of Cathedral parishioners remembers nothing but the red carpet that lined the aisles of our church.

Today, carpetlayers are removing the aged carpet from the floor, chipping the glue away, and sweeping the subfloor for the first time in decades. Massgoers should see new carpet this weekend.

The Cathedral's original 1914 floor was polished hard wood. It was covered with linoleum around the time of the 1948 renovation.
