The Restoration Walk

The Restoration Walk surrounds the West, South and Eastern sides of the Cathedral. Each brick is valued at $300.00 and represents a very valuable gift to the ongoing maintenance of the cathedral. Bricks measure approx 20cm x 12cm and will provide a lasting record of your contribution. For visitors to our city this is your opportunity to assist the Cathedral and be part of our great City and its traditions.
