Praying with the saints
One of the essential elements in converting the Protestant worship space into a Catholic church was to install an altar, and part of that altar is a reliquary. The tradition harks back to the early Church, when persecuted Christians gathered in catacombs, offering Mass on altars atop bones of martyrs. The bones, blood or clothing included in Christ Cathedral's altar are from American, Mexican, Vietnamese, and Korean saints.
