In the sacristy, Father Ryan welcomes Father William Gallagher, former pastor of St. James Cathedral, and Father Jim Johnson, former sacristan, to the Centennial celebration.  Other concelebrants were Father David Brant, Father Richard Ward, and Father Joseph Ostopowich, pastor of the Ukrainian Rite community at St. James Cathedral Parish.  Archbishop Brunett presided at the Mass.

Archbishop Brunett preaches to the Cathedral community.  "We thank God on this feast of Christ the King that for one hundred years this Cathedral of St. James has faithfully served ... the people of this Archdiocese, and the people of this region in the name of the gospel.  It has been a wonderful history of seeing and celebrating and living out our Christian identity.  In God�s name, we will continue to do this.  We will promote the welfare of those to whom we are sent.  We will continue to serve each human person in God�s name.  We will do our part to ensure that all people experience God�s plan for humanity:  a future full of hope."  Read the full text of Archbishop Brunett's remarks here.

Concelebrating priests encircle the altar during the Our Father.

The hymn of praise.  "Praise we Him whose blood was shed, Paschal victim, Paschal bread; With sincerity and love eat we manna from above."

Father Ryan and Father Gallagher.  Together they represent more than thirty years of leadership of the Cathedral Parish.

And joined by Father Dick Ward.  Bishop O'Dea refused to smile for the camera!
