Metal Plate Covering the Area of the Cave-In
The Cathedral was closed in December 2009 following an accident when one of the stone floor slabs gave way underneath a teacher who was preparing students of the Antigua Girls High School for their annual Carol Service. Thanks be to God, her injuries were limited to soft tissue damage and she has since made a complete recovery. Until this incident, restoration efforts were focused on the roof sheathing that has been in place since the Cathedral was constructed. An examination of the aisles showed that the stone slabs were sagging and cracked in many places and could no longer be relied on for support.
