EMERGENCY DOME RESTORATION
$4.7 Million remains of a $35 Million dollar effort on the emergency restoration of the Cathedral’s copper dome and roof. The work was necessary to preserve this Beaux Arts landmark which is still the highest point in Saint Paul in more ways than one!
$14 Million is needed to repair the interior damage caused by leaks in the dome and roof before the exterior restoration. Not simply aesthetic, the damage affects the stone as well as the ornamental plasterwork of the interior. The mechanical infrastructure of the Cathedral is also overdue for improvement/replacement.
Help preserve the landmark
The Cathedral of Saint Paul is a historic landmark that is continually being improved and enhanced. The generosity of visitors and parishioners alike gives vital support to the Cathedral’s ongoing preservation.
