The docent committee of the Cathedral is a volunteer committee comprised of a small group of parishioners who share a love of and appreciation for our historic Cathedral and its place in our community.
We havegathered information over the years from notes, books, art history experts, and, of course, former pastors.
We provide tours to anyone who has an interest. These groups may range from schoolchildren to senior citizens to visiting priests. Tours of the Cathedral are especially popular with art history students. We have both Catholic and Non-Catholic groups and try to tailor our presentation to the age and interests of the group.
Tours are arranged through the Cathedral office and are generally held during normal working hours, however, weekend tours can often be arranged depending on our docent's schedules. Evening tours are not provided.
We welcome any parishioner who has an interest in learning more about the Cathedral. We suggest observing several tours in order to become comfortable with the information before going 'solo'. At present, we give approximately 12-15 tours a year. It is a learning process but so rewarding!
