It’s an impressive architectural building on a grand scale, and certainly worthy to be called a Cathedral from the design perspective. But it’s an odd choice for the Church given it’s high profile as the home of “Hour Of Power”(which I personally enjoyed occasionally) and strong historical association with Protestantism.
Which brings me to my question… Is this the first time a Catholic Cathedral has been procured from a Protestant Church? And is this the first time ever that a Church has been procured?
I’ve always thought it was perhaps the most impressive architectural Protestant church ever, so I don’t disagree with the purchase, but I find it a fascinating choice for a “New” Cathedral, because it was historically Protestant.
I wonder if the usual Cathedral tours and such things will be obligated to teach about it’s “Hour of Power” history and evangelical origins.
