Restoration project detail

The Cathedral restoration project now underway is the result of much planning and careful consideration over many years, by the Diocese of Bathurst.

The enormity of effort and funds (est. $6.5million) required to restore this building is a significant responsibility and the need for careful planning is key to what is anticipated to be a four year project.
