At the conclusion of the Mass, Archbishop Brunett is presented with a gift of a crosier, created by Ulrich Henn, the artist of our Cathedral tabernacle and the ceremonial bronze doors.  Here Archbishop Brunett is surrounded by a group of men whom he has ordained to the priesthood over the past ten years.

The golden banners created for the Jubilee celebration are the work of Cathedral parishioner (and scenic artist for Seattle Opera) Kitty Kavanaugh.  Here is Kitty pictured with Archbishop Brunett and the golden jubilee banners.  The banners are inspired by the work of Gustav Klimt.
