Preparations for Pope Francis’ visit to New York City in September have kept workers busy at a North Street business for more than three years.
The Keck Group’s church pew restoration plant expects to soon make its last delivery of pews and furnishings to St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Manhattan. The batch includes presider side chairs to seat the pope and Cardinal Timothy Dolan at the main altar.
Basilica of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral
Construction of The Basilica of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral was completed in 1815, and at the time was the third Catholic Church organized in the United States.
It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1977, and designated a Basilica by his holiness Pope Benedict XV1 on March 17, 2010.
The Keck Group was commissioned to restore the pews to their original glory beginning in October of 2014. This is an ongoing project and will be highlighted in future web site additions.
