$30M cathedral restoration led by Duncan Stroik
October 27, 2009
The Diocese of Sioux Falls in South Dakota is undertaking a $30 million restoration of its cathedral. Architect Duncan Stroik of the University of Notre Dame, who is renowned for his appreciation of classic forms of architecture, is overseeing the restoration, which is intended to bring to fruition the original design of Franco-American architect Emmanuel Louis Masqueray (1861-1917).
“I hope there’s several reactions, one is ‘Wow, what a beautiful place that lifts the spirit,’ and if it lifts the spirit perhaps brings a prayerful sense to people,” said Bishop Paul Swain.
