May 7, 2014 – Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio will dedicate the church and consecrate the altar of the Co-Cathedral of St. Joseph, which has undergone an extensive renovation over the past six years, on Tuesday, May 13, at 7:30PM.
The church was designed by F. J. Berlenbach, a Brooklyn architect, and was originally dedicated on May 3, 1914. The current renovation has included a new roof; restoring the windows, which are of museum quality; shorter steeples, which were installed to replace those removed in the 1970s because of structural damage; and the restoration of the bell, which has been hoisted into place in one of the steeples.
The ceremony is open to the public. For more information, see this press release.
