The Last Days of the Cathedral in Jacmel

24 Aug

You may remember Sts. James and Phillip Cathedral was badly damaged from the earthquake in 2010. It was not safe to worship in the space. For the past seven years, there was a discussion about what could be done to restore it. It would take millions of dollars to restore the historic site, so it was decided to demolish the building and save the holy altar.

On July 2, the Cathedral faith community held a beautiful concert prayer ritual followed by Mass at 5 p.m.

About a week later, the demolition began…and now, on this rock, a new Cathedral will be built for the Diocese of Jacmel, in God’s time.
