AROUND OUR DIOCESE: Yesterday, Christ Cathedral installed a new bronze bas-relief sculpture that depicts Gospel images that reflect the divinity of Christ. It is the second of four that will go inside the cathedral's ground-level interior wall.   

The artwork by Pablo Eduardo is titled, "Adoration of the Christ Child by the Magi (Epiphany)." The first piece was installed in October 2021. As the final two sculptures arrive, they will replace temporary Biblical messages placed during the cathedral's 2019 dedication. 

Dr. Robert and Ramza Hamra, longtime benefactors of the Diocese, generously donated toward the manifestation and were present for its installation, as were Bishop Kevin Vann, cathedral rector Fr. Bao Thai, rector emeritus Fr. Christopher Smith and Msgr. Arthur Holquin. 

Eduardo's bronze artwork is also featured in the cathedral's Stations of the Cross, Bishop's Doors and narthex. Next time you're at the cathedral, stop by and take a look! 🖼

On Aug. 10, the church celebrated St. Lawrence - deacon and Martyr. Today, we hear from Fr. Timothy Nguyen who shares a story about St. Lawrence’s devotion to the poor and to Jesus. 

St. Lawrence, pray for us so that we can also be willing to give everything to Jesus! 

Listen to Fr. Timothy’s full reflection through the link in our bio.
