Building Notes: Designed by Grand Rapids architect John Grady, the original church was completed in 1876 and named as a cathedral in 1883. After a fire in 1901, reconstruction on a larger scale followed the Gothic Revival plans of Ernest Brielmaier and Sons of Milwaukee. Later additions in 1938, 1961 and 1980-81 added even more space and features.
