I sat with the engineer from Basankusu Cathedral today at our celebration for a new brother taking his vows. The engineer says the cathedral will be finished "this year". Basankusu Cathedral was built by Mill Hill Missionaries in the 1940s, but has since been demolished and is being rebuilt. It was made of brick but is being rebuilt in reinforced concrete. It is the most substantial building in Basankusu - by a long chalk!
