The folks at Holy Family Cathedral, the mother church for the Diocese of Tulsa Oklahoma, are wrapping up a remodeling project that they starting in 2006. They’ve been tracking their progress on a blog too – theirs is called Haec Est Domus Domini. The current project includes rebuilding the cathedral spires (replacing wood with metal), a new copper roof, a complete renovation of the chapel, and a new vibrant paint scheme.
