Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist: Everybody's Church, tonight at 9 on channel 25

My family, the Ferrises and the Michaels, worked on the renovation of this city's Roman Catholic cathedral back when they were Presbyterians, after the war, the Second World War. My dad was an apprentice carpenter there. My Uncle Hugh fell through the roof and lived. Gloria and I now attend there because we're comfortable, wrapped in tradition and good architecture, trying to figure out where Uncle Hugh came through. Under the direction of Bishop Lennon and Father Estok, there are new and interesting things happening there these past few years.

Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist: Everybody's Church

This documentary examines the history and role the Cathedral has played for nearly 160 years in Cleveland. The program highlights the beautiful cathedral building in which Clevelanders celebrate the Eucharist and worship – the Cathedral parish, everybody’s church. In beautiful detail, this program captures and recounts these historic events and the life of the Cathedral today, providing a magnificent archive for the generations to come. The Cathedral today is a vibrant and enthusiastic institution, community, and ministry at the heart of Northeast Ohio’s religious, civic, financial, and social crossroads.
