Now with the renovation complete, the Diocese hopes to make the cathedral a focal point for its spiritual mission.
“The cathedral stands as a physical sign of unity of the 62 parishes in the Diocese of Orange,” the Rev. Christopher Smith, rector and episcopal vicar of the church, told the Los Angeles Times.
The renovations incorporate important Catholic iconography, including a 1,000-pound crucifix and a cross-shaped baptismal pool. Relics from several Catholic martyrs and Pope John Paul II are also encased in the altar, according to the Times.
The building is also upgraded with several modern renovations, including seismic retrofitting and air conditioning, KABC reported.
