More on Oakland's new cathedral

Today's (Sept. 15) San Francisco Chronicle has a front-page article (click on this post's title) on Oakland's under-construction Cathedral of Christ the Light.

Among other things, the article says:

"Scheduled to open next September on 2.5 acres at the intersection of Harrison Street and Grand Avenue, the new center will include the 1,500-seat cathedral, a public plaza, a cafe, a bookstore, a mausoleum, chancery offices, a 500-seat conference center, a 200-car garage, and residences for Bishop Allen Vigneron and cathedral pastor Father Quang Minh Dong.

"Parishioner Mary Cwalina of Pinole said the center will provide resources to the broader East Bay community and uplift the downtrodden. The Oakland Diocese each year provides food, shelter, medical care and social services to 400,000 people."

How about adding a pro-life (yes, anti-abortion) counseling center?
