Chapel Restorations – Memorial Opportunities Available


Over the summer of 2008, several items in the Chapel at Cathedral Prep had been restored to its original beauty or purchased for use in the Liturgy. We would like to offer these items to our alumni for MEMORIALIZING THEIR DECEASED LOVED ONES, OR HONORING LIVING RELATIVES, FRIENDS AND BENEFACTORS.  Each of these items will be used every day in the spiritual formation of our current students and to help make the already beautiful heart of Cathedral even more beautiful. We would be able to place

a plaque with the name of the person who is being memorialized (or honored)on each item. Please contact Fr. John Cush,'90, Spiritual Director, at (718) 592-6800 ext. 120 or at in this opportunity.
