Holy Name Cathedral to remain closed during reconstruction

Chicago's Holy Name Cathedral will remain closed until structural repairs are completed on the building's 134-year-old wooden ceiling trusses. A 10-pound piece of the ceiling fell 70-feet to the floor earlier this month. No one was hurt.

Mass will now be held in the cathedral's parish auditorium while repairs are underway.

Officials are hoping the cathedral will re-open by Easter Sunday.
