Additional observations This is the bishop’s cathedral in the diocese of Stockton. It is a majestic Gothic church, beautiful inside and out. Its features include a marble high altar with brass tabernacle, arching stained glass windows and a high vaulted ceiling. Zip over and see it as soon as you can, because word is that Stockton’s bishop, Stephen Blaire, has plans to remodel it.
