Lahore cathedral repair funded by government
Pakistan’s Lahore District Government has provided more than US$ 30,000 to repair the dome of Lahore’s Sacred Heart Catholic Cathedral. An earthquake last November had damaged the over 50-metre tall dome and brought down the cross on top. The dome, which engineers until recently were reluctant to work on at that height, will regain its former glory thanks to Muhammad Ishtiaq, a Muslim who is a town planning officer. Archbishop Sebastian Shah on Wednesday came to view the work that started a couple of months ago. Masons have begun to remove the bricks that fell from the damaged parts.
