    Out of balloons.
  • The new building has stats. Darryl talks about them.
  • Salt and Light will be recording the dedication.
  • Apparently dedications are complicated. Go figure.
  • The last cathedral dedication in North America was… probably the one in L.A. (2002)? In Canada, it’s probably been a few decades at least. Sacred Heart in Prince George (1960’s) might be the most recent?
  • The Crystal Cathedral will be the new cathedral in Orange.
  • Get tickets to the grand gathering.
  • The Prayer of Dedication is pretty.
  • Sticky is available for visual appreciation at andyland.ca
  • Granite does not absorb oil, apparently.
  • Remember: No kissing until after the blessing (of the altar).
  • Sarah Hall made nice windows.
  • Find people who have talents and are willing to share them.
  • Google Docs, Dropbox and Backpack.

  3. Fr. Andrew says:

    A parish church should be consecrated but it could be only blessed. In fact, the St. Paul Cathedral was never consecrated, only blessed. It is something we should remedy someday.

    • Fr. Andrew says:

      This was because it was a parish church before it became a cathedral in 1948.

      • darryl says:

        Interesting. Is the main difference between the blessing and consecration the use of Chrism during the rite? Or is it much more involved?
