The Roman Catholic Diocese of Providence is making some major improvements to the Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul. That will mean masses will be moved downstairs to a meeting hall for a few months.
The Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul is getting a massive facelift just in time for its 125th anniversary next year. Monsignor Anthony Mancini, rector of the church, said improvements are being made from top to bottom.
A service was held in Providence Wednesday to honor all the homeless people who died in 2012. The service was held at the Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul. The names of 44 individuals were read and candles were lit in their memory. A 45th candle was also illuminated in case they missed anyone.
