St Patrick's Cathedral, HarrisburgSt. Patrick’s Cathedral, Harrisburg

The detailed interior restoration and renewal of the cathedral, which took place from June-December of 2006, included the repositioning of the tabernacle and the bishop’s chair to their original location, the restoration of the marble flooring, the addition of a mural of the four evangelists, the restoration of the canvases depicting the four Fathers of the Church, and the comprehensive cleaning, repainting and repairs of the murals, shrines, walls and ceilings. The stained-glass windows and the cathedral exterior, including the dome, were repaired and restored in 2004.

“This church now has a special splendor, such as it had when it first opened a century ago,” Cardinal Keeler said in his homily. “But even more, it has been updated, so that its splendor reflects the latest in technology. In short, it is a renewed cathedral.”
