These are good news. Thank you Mos.
About time !
Beats placing one stone over another, building so called empty churches all the way from Alabama to Zululand and calling them Cathedrals.**
** In the Armenian a Cathedral is known as Կաթողիկէ, առաջնորդանիստ, կաթողիկոսանիստ , (C[k]atholic -oss?) Seat of the Bishop. Alternately known as ՏԱՃԱՐ/Tajar. An altogether different subject, as that word means temple, ie. a place of pagan worship.

A cathedral (French cathédrale from Latin. cathedra, "seat" from the Greek kathedra (καθέδρα), seat, bench, from kata "down" + hedra seat, base, chair) is a Christian church which contains the seat of a bishop, thus serving as the central church of a diocese, conference, or episcopate.
