Raleigh is getting a new Cathedral

SEP 7, 2011

WRAL reports:

"The Catholic Diocese of Raleigh plans to build a cathedral in southwest Raleigh, Bishop Michael Burbidge said Wednesday.

The 2,000-seat Holy Name of Jesus Cathedral will be on the 39-acre former site of Cardinal Gibbons High School, west of the Dorothea Dix Hospital campus between Centennial Parkway and Western Boulevard.

Burbidge said there is no time-line for construction, but officials hope to break ground by the middle of 2013. The project is expected to cost $75 million to $90 million, and he said the diocese hopes to raise at least a third of the cost before breaking ground."
