Restored Catholic cathedral reopens

After three years of painstaking restoration work, the 173-year-old Cathedral of the Good Shepherd in Queen Street opened its doors to worshippers again yesterday.

Roman Catholics gathered in the gleaming church yesterday to celebrate the Feast of Christ The King.

The mass was celebrated by Archbishop William Goh.

The cathedral is the oldest Roman Catholic church in Singapore. It was established in 1832 by French missionaries, and is the seat of the archbishop.
