Progress has been made cleaning and restoring the damaged areas to the interior of the Cathedral of the Holy Spirit after the deliberately lit fire in April. The smoke and ash damage resulted in the closure of the cathedral for cleaning and repairs. Scaffolding for cleaning the church interior, and a machine to suck air out of the building to remove the smoke smell have been required. The Cathedral is expected to be ready for the Episcopal Ordination and Installation of Rev John Adams as Bishop of the Diocese of Palmerston North on Saturday, 30 September.
