Special exhibit at the Cathedral honors Bishop Clark

A special exhibit honoring Roman Catholic Bishop of Rochester Matthew Clark is on display through Sept. 16 at Sacred Heart Cathedral, 296 Flower City Park, Rochester.

The free and public exhibit features numerous photographs from Bishop Clark’s youth and family life, his years as a priest and his service since 1979 as the 8th Bishop of Rochester, as well as historical letters, articles and documents related to his episcopacy.

Bishop Clark officially retired on his 75th birthday, July 15, 2012, but will continue to until a successor is chosen by Pope Benedict XVI, a process that can take several months.

Sacred Heart Cathedral, the Mother Church of the 12-county Diocese of Rochester, is open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily.
