Pictures from the Blessing of the Cathedral’s Light Rail Station


CIMG0079 We had a brief ceremony on Sunday following the 11 AM service. The Cathedral congregation has adopted the Light Rail station at Roosevelt St. and Central Ave. – the one right across from the Cathedral itself.

You can see all of the pictures from the day here.

(That’s Dean Dick George’s cassock. I’ve still not managed to order one, and this one fits well enough. But it is certainly, um, festive!)

Episcopal bishop, dad, astronomer, erstwhile dancer...


  1. Hmm. That’s no cassock…unless I’m quite mistaken that’s a simar. A fairly rare beast typically reserved for bishops and above.

  2. It was a gift to Dean George from the Cathedral in Peoria (Diocese of Quincy). Here’s hoping they knew what they were doing. Grin.
    I’ve seen a number of similar outfits with red instead of purple piping worn by Cathedral canons.
