New spire raised over Notre Dame in Paris
December 07, 2023
CWN Editor's Note: A new spire, surmounted by a cross, has been raised over the basilica of Notre Dame, replacing the spire that was destroyed by fire in 2019.
The spire, reaching to a height of over 300 feet, is identical in design to the one it replaced. The new structure was finished two days before a scheduled visit by French President Emmanuel Macron, and one year before the date—December 8, 2024—when Notre Dame will be formally opened for worship once again.The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
