AMARILLO, Texas — Next week, the Catholic Diocese of Amarillo will be having a lively celebration, which is the transfer of the Episcopal chair and the elevation of St. Mary’s Catholic Church to cathedral status.

The process will begin at St. Laurence Cathedral at 7 p.m. Thursday, where vespers, or evening prayer, will be presided by Bishop Patrick J. Zurek. Afterward, the Cathedra, or Bishop’s chair, will be removed from St. Laurence, where it has served the Amarillo diocese since October 1975. Mass will be celebrated at St. Mary’s Church at 2 p.m. Friday.
