DONATIONS SOLICITED FOR RESTORATION NATIONAL LANDMARK
Friday 5th March 2010

Late last year, the Cathedral of St. John the Divine (St. John’s Cathedral) celebrated its 161st year anniversary; in the same year, it was also forced to close its doors after a section of its floor collapsed and was scene of an accident when a teacher fell through the floor. The church church’s dean, Rudolph Smithen estimated a grand total of $3 million dollars for renovating the church church’s roof, floor and pews. This estimate, however, has been further increased to $12 million. The church’s restoration committee plans to tackle these issues in separate phases and will be seeking to raise funds accordingly.

During the first phase, repairs will be done to the structure’s foundation and roof and the pews will be replaced; this is expected to cost $3,440,000. Another $3,840,000 or so will be needed for the second phase of the project, which would include repairs to external and internal walls as well as electrical work.
The last two phases will consist of several other projects; to include there location of the vestry, renovation of bathroom facilities and the stairs leading to the tower doors, repairs to the perimeter walls and gates, clocks and clarion and the church church’s pathway. The church’s restoration committee has embarked on several fund-raising missions and will continue to do so in order to facilitate the repairs to this historic landmark.
 
Individuals interested in making a contribution are being asked to send their donations to the St. John John’s Cathedral Restoration,
C/O The Very Rev. Rudolph Smithen,
 Dean of St. John’s Cathedral,
 P.O. Box 71,
St. John’s Street,
