A New Cathedral

  • A new cathedral dedicated to St. Olav will be consecrated in Trondheim, Norway, in 2017, according to a report in La Croix.

    When the current cathedral was built in 1973, there were 500 Catholics in Norway’s third-largest city. There are now 6,000 Catholics there; the majority are Poles, and over a quarter are native Norwegians.

    The new cathedral will be located near historic Nidaros Cathedral, which dates from the eleventh century and became a Lutheran church in 1537.

  • I pray that it is not a replica of Our Lady of the Angels in Los Angeles, CA.
    I seen a very few examples of true church architecture that lifts the heart
    and mind to God and things eternal.
    What I have seen looks more than gymnasiums than houses of God.
    They can still build a Gothic Church today that would be even better
    than those in the middle ages.

  • I saw a photo of the Cathedral.

    Looks like a typical grain elevator that you can see by the railroad tracks.
