    From Church to Cathedral
1957 ~ 2007
Celebrating 50 Years as a Cathedral

A reviewing stand was erected at the corner of Clinton Avenue and Front Street for the Bishop and various members of the clergy, parish and local government. Fr. Williams can be seen standing in back of the Bishop.

Marchers assembled in the parking lot opposite the Cathedral to await their turn in the line of march.

Rockville Centre Mayor W. Harry Lister presents Bishop Kellenberg with the key to the village as well as Scroll of Citizenship. 
After the presentation Bishop Kellenberg responded "What I would like to earn is what Msgr. Quealy has, the key to your hearts.
I wish to forge one myself as he did with hard work and love and devotion."
