Saint Thomas Aquinas Cathedral, Reno

Saint Thomas Aquinas Cathedral, Reno

Saint Thomas Aquinas Cathedral is the mother church of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Reno. It is located at 310 W. 2nd Street in Reno. On May 21, 1906, Catholic officials purchased the Sol Levy home at the corner of Second and Chestnut (now Arlington) streets in Reno for $10,000 to be the site of St. Thomas Aquinas Cathedral. The cornerstone was laid in June 1906 and the cathedral was dedicated June 21, 1908. A fire on Dec. 21, 1909, caused major damage, including collapse of the ceiling, but it was salvaged and reopened in 1910. A renovation conducted in the 1950s added a wraparound mural that surrounds the altar. As of 2010 the Cathedral is undergoing another restoration. The Cathedral is staffed by Conventual Franciscans: Order of the Friars, Minor.
