In preparing this book for publication for the Cathedral parish, it was decided that a proper conclusion would be to place a state historical marker on the site of the original college and church from 1902-1903.

The property owners, the Glorioso family, gave permission to begin the excavations.

And includes …
Tour of the Cathedral and Chapel
Chronological listing of historical events of the parish
Biography of our patron along with holy card and medal collection
