Cardboard Cathedral

Took my parents to visit the new Cathedral.  Not at all what I expected. Light,  airy,  sustainable and interesting.

The cardboard beams are covered with clear lite roofing. 



Interesting chairs.....


We were treated to some organ music while we looked. 


The Trinity Window at the entrance features photographs of the old Rose Window printed on the glass. 


Be good to see it used and enjoyed by a wide range of people :)

  1. Looks like a very interesting building. Would like to visit. I hope people don't compare to the original. It seems a very unique structure

  3. It looks fascinating: light and airy and conducive to meditation which is, after all,what a church is supposed to be about.
