The Roman Catholic diocese of Raleigh, North Carolina had the smallest cathedral of any diocese in the United States with a seating capacity of 320. A decision was made to build a new cathedral to serve the needs of the diocese. Ground was broken in 2017, and the Cathedral was dedicated 2 1/2 years later. It can now seat 2000 people.
|The weather didn't look promising, but the interior glowed.|
|The Cathedral was still decorated for Christmas at the time of our visit.|
|The Cathedral is one of only two churches in North Carolina with a dome, and it is beautiful.|
|Here is a photo taken at a prior visit. In it, you have a better view of the Carerra marble of the floor surrounding the altar.|
