On Friday, February 10, 2023, the demolition of the parish hall and bishop’s offices will be complete. The debris piles will be removed, and post-demolition stabilization and beautification will begin. This phase, which includes removing the plywood off the cathedral windows, repairing the asphalt, installing sod where the buildings once stood, and landscaping the south side of the cathedral, will take approximately two to three weeks to complete.
To continue to ensure everyone’s safety, all parking will remain suspended while the post-demolition work is in progress. As a reminder, there are 14 parking spaces near 16th Street, and free valet parking will continue to be provided for service on Sundays.

Permits have been secured and demolition of the parish hall and the Bishop’s offices has begun. Demolition will take approximately 45 days to complete, and demolition will not occur on Saturdays and Sundays. To ensure everyone’s safety, all parking will temporarily be suspended while the demolition is in progress. 14 parking spaces have been secured outside the perimeter fence near 16th Street and there will be free valet parking service on Sundays.
This is an exciting time! As we look to reimagine a new parish hall and event spaces, we will be seeking your input. We expect our first thought-sharing sessions to begin in late February 2023, so please stay tuned for meeting dates.

In preparation for the demolition of the parish hall addition and the diocese office buildings, a fence will be installed on December 20, 2022. The fence contractor will leave several panels open on 16th and 15th Streets to ensure easy access. Please note that demolition will not begin until after Christmas Day.
