Brick by Brick

Exterior wall of St. Michael's Cathedral - a testament to 
authentic lay participation.

In the 1840's individual parishioners would buy a brick from the brick-maker for one cent.  They kept on this way until at last they had together amassed enough bricks to build St. Michael’s Cathedral. This glorious place was built (brick by brick, penny by penny) by only 3000 Catholics. 3000 poor Catholics. 

What can you contribute to the St. Michael’s Cathedral Restoration fund?
