Coin Story

The Cathedral of St. Patrick (commonly called St. Patrick's Cathedral) is a decorated Neo-Gothic-style Roman Catholic cathedral church in the United States. It is the seat of the archbishop of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New York, and a parish church, located on the east side of Fifth Avenue between 50th and 51st Streets in midtown Manhattan, New York City, New York, directly across the street from Rockefeller Center and specifically facing the Atlas statue. According to Catholic News Service (CNS) and the Catholic News Agency (CNA), Cardinal Timothy Michael Dolan, the incumbent Archbishop of New York, announced before reviewing the city's parade on St. Patrick's Day of 2012 (Saturday, March 17, 2012) that the Cathedral- because of crumbling bricks, faulty heating, and acid rain and pollution that has eaten away at the Tuckahoe marble of the 135-year-old church- would undergo a massive five-year, three-phase, $175 million renovation ($45million, which came from early donors and grants from the Archdiocese and the Trustees of the Cathedral, has already been raised for the first phase, which began in late March; it will involves repairing, restoring, and cleaning the soot-covered exterior, and an extensive cleaning of the outside and inside surfaces of the stained glass windows; the Cathedral will remain open during the renovations and work will pause during Masses, according to the Cathedral's rector, Monsignor Robert Ritchie).
