Reno, Nevada: Saint Thomas Aquinas Cathedral
About Reno, Nevada:
Reno, Nevada bills itself as “the biggest little city in the world” and like its larger neighbor, Las Vegas, is known as a mecca for gamblers. It is also, however, a vacation spot for many……due to the nearby mountains and the great skiing to be found there, as well as the many summer activities at Lake Tahoe.
About St. Thomas Aquinas Cathedral in Reno:
Naturally, many of those visitors to Reno are going to be Catholic and so it means that they will be looking for a place to attend Mass. Probably the most readily accessible of the churches in Reno is Saint Thomas Aquinas Cathedral.
The growth of this area stemmed from mining, not gambling, in the early years and that is reflected inside the Cathedral. The altar is made from native Nevada Aragonite from a local mine owned by the brother of then Bishop Connelly.
Among other notable features of the Cathedral is a life-size replica of Michelangelo’s “Pieta”.
