Cathedral Parish

Throughout the twentieth century until the mid 1960s, the Cathedral served as a parish church to some 3,000 households. The Cathedral served as the parish church to Governor Alfred E. Smith. His daughter Catherine was married here in 1928. The Cathedral has witnessed many historic events: the consecration of bishops, the ordination of priests, deacons, the visits of Cardinals, the visit of the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Right Reverend Michael Ramsey.
