Many people comment about the beauty and cleanliness of our Cathedral. In addition to regular daily maintenance, every year during Lent, we empty the Cathedral and do a major cleaning of the floors, walls, and both iconostases. Faithful members volunteer their time and "elbow grease" to help us with this major project, scraping wax from the floors, polishing brass hanging vigil lamps (over 50), accouterments, and candle stands, and doing whatever else is needed.
