HomeOur ParishCathedral Tour › Quealy Room


The cathedral renovation completed in 1982 created a new room immediately below the sacristy.  This area formally housed the heating plant for the cathedral.  This new space was named the Quealy Room in honor of Msgr. Peter Quealy.  

The Quealy Room is an all purpose room used for meetings, prayer groups, as well as the  altar servers vesting room and as a second sacristy for visiting priests.  The room is accessible by both stairway and elevator from the sacristy. 

On one wall can be found a painting that was once the center panel of the triptych Shrine of the Suffering Souls of Purgatory. Although the two original side panels have been removed it still retains its original oak panel framing.  This Shrine was formally located on the main floor of the cathedral and was moved to the Quealy room as part of the 1982 renovation.  

Two statues of Mary can also be found in the Quealy room.  The first is Queen of the Rosary and the second is of the Madonna and Child.
