Photographer's Note

"The Cathedral of Saint Andrew traces its beginning to the founding of St. Mary’s Church by the Rev. Frederic Baraga. He built a small church, rectory and school on the west bank of the Grand River and the people who attended the church were Native Americans. The Rev. Andreas Viszoczky was named the parish’s first pastor two years later. After the Native Americans left and the town of Grand Rapids grew, Father Viszoczky built a new church on Monroe Street which he named St. Andrew. The church building was constructed of Grand River limestone and completed in 1850. The newly established Diocese of Grand Rapids chose Saint Andrew’s as the cathedral and it was consecrated on April 22, 1883. Lightning struck the cathedral in 1901 and a fire destroyed part of the church building. It was rebuilt and expanded. The cathedral was renovated in 1979-1980 and also from 1997-2000. The front entrance of the cathedral was remodeled in 2009 and the Piazza Secchia was laid." (Gleaned from Wikipedia.)

After our museum tour, we wanted to visit this cathedral but we found out that there was a service going on. So we returned to our hotel. This set of photos concludes my reportage from our trip to Grand Rapids in the beginning of May. I will be back after a few days' excursion to the Poconos for Memorial Weekend.
