What does CATHEDRAL stand for? Cathedral stands for Catholic Education Rally. In history, the cathedral was understood as more than a work of art, it was a symbol of the stability and faithfulness of the people and their knowledge and love for the Lord. We want to discuss the question, “what does it mean to build a 21st century Cathedral for Christ?”
What is the Dedication Banquet? Do I have to dress up? This event is a celebration of the conclusion of your week at BC CATHEDRAL. We are excited to celebrate your accomplishments. Please bring a nice outfit to wear to this event. Business Casual is recommended.
