After almost a century of service to the Catholic community, the Cathedral was in need of significant restoration to its copper dome, slate clad pitched roofs, gold leaf cross and exquisite stained-glass windows. The existing stone masonry was also chemically cleaned and re-pointed with new epoxy-based mortar that matched the original color and texture. All damaged masonry and cast stone trim pieces were either repaired or replaced in-kind depending on the level of deterioration. The painted frescoes on the interior dome were also restored to their original grandeur.

Lastly, the monumental entrance doors, whose operation had plagued the maintenance staff for decades due to their weight and lack of appropriate hardware, were replaced with new in-kind custom doors and extra heavy-duty hinges and hardware.
