NYT story about the Cathedral

The New York Times has a story about Cathedral of Christ the Light, now nearly completed at the foot of the HarriOak neighborhood. The Cathedral has a lot of interesting architectural detail: The golden interior built of Douglas fir, the silvery glass veil that drapes the exterior, the finials that point heaven-ward, adding exclamation marks to ascending prayers. The story focuses on a small, controversial healing garden for victims of sexual abuse by priests.
