Pope Francis, Bishop Stika, and Cardinal Rigali with the Dedication Stone in Rome

On the Feast of the Chair of Saint Peter (the Rock) we bid farewell to another sort of rock, the Sacred Heart Cathedral Dedication Stone. The Dedication Stone continues on its pilgrimage through the Diocese of Knoxville as it makes its way from the old Sacred Heart Cathedral, through all the parishes and missions, and to the new Sacred Heart Cathedral. Thank you Bishop Stika for letting us participate from our Cor Jesu Monastery!
