Bishop Richard Stika and Deacon Sean Smith took a tour of the Cathedral grounds today as crews were setting the stage for the Cathedral Groundbreaking ceremony. And then…Bishop spotted a brand new backhoe he couldn’t resist! Merit Construction Project Manager Fred Atkins and Sacred Heart Facilities Manager Tom Greer helped along the way!

Come to the Cathedral Groundbreaking Sunday, April 19 at 12:30 pm immediately following the 11:00 am Mass celebrated by His Eminence Cardinal Justin Rigali on the campus of Sacred Heart Cathedral, 711 S. Northshore Drive, Knoxville, TN.
