Grace Cathdedral – to the Glory of God

Grace Cathedral is an Episcopal Church in San Francisco, California. It was born of Grace Church which was founded in 1849 during the Gold Rush, and became a cathedral just in time to be destroyed in the Great Earthquake of 1906. Construction of the present structure, in the French Gothic style, was begun in 1928 and finished in 1964. Today, it’s the third largest Episcopalian Cathedral in the nation. Grace Cathedral is a living cathedral especially known for its complete involvement serving the diverse San Francisco Bay Area, its “Gates of Paradise” front doors, its indoor and outdoor labryinths, stained glass windows, choirs, a 44-bell carillon and more. Today, it hosts over 3 million visitors each year.

To the Glory of God.

That is what the header said and the title was, “The woman of Samaria.”
