Cornerstone Delivery

Sacred Heart Cathedral News

The cornerstone has arrived! The stone, delivered by Rugo Stone, LLC. is made from Imperial Danby Marble, and weighs 3400 pounds. This marble was chosen for its beauty and purity and is from Vermont. Since Bible times, laying a cornerstone has carried marked significance in the construction of many buildings, churches included. A cornerstone will sometimes be referred to as a “foundation stone,” and is symbolic of Christ.
Ephesians 2:19-22 “So then you are no longer strangers and sojourners, but you are fellow citizens with the holy ones, and members of the household of God, built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the capstone. Through Him, the whole structure is held together and grows into a temple sacred in the Lord. In Him, you also are being built together into a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.”
 
The Laying of the Cornerstone is March 25th, 2017, at 11:00 am.
