Cornerstone to be Installed
Back in 1997, His All Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew broke ground for the new Cathedral and lay the cornerstone. Early in May, almost 20 years later, the construction workers will lay this stone on the exact spot where the ground breaking took place. Recall, the ground breaking took place just below the old courtyard, adjacent an evergreen. In the new con guration, the spot is on the courtyard, as one exits the north doors of the Cathedral.
