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.
