Cathedral update

Jun 4, 2015

It doesn’t take long for nature to begin to take over a Cathedral.

Christchurch’s Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament has been closed to the public since September earthquake in 2010. In the fatal February 2011 quake the towers fell and the nave of the great church was severely damaged with substantial cracks appearing from the roof into the foundations.

A couple of weeks ago these photos of the interior nave were taken. A week later the hopeful news that every effort will be made to save the nave of the Cathedral and reconstruct a sanctuary and entrance. You can read the media release at this link.
