Parishioners at the Church of St. Joseph will have extra reason to celebrate when they gather to mark the Feast of St. Joseph.
In one of his last acts as pope, Benedict XVI designated the Pacific Street church as co-cathedral of the Brooklyn Diocese – sharing responsibilities with the smaller St. James Cathedral Basilica in Downtown Brooklyn. The churches will house the chair of the bishop, and split duties hosting major diocesan events.
“The church is not a building, it is the people,” said Msgr. Kieran Harrington, the pastor of St. Joseph’s, as he informed the congregation of the church’s new status. “It is a great honor for you and me and this area.”
