It's been nearly six months since fire damaged the historic Holy Name Cathedral and while worshipers have found other locations to hold mass, they'll soon be back in their church. Repairs have been ongoing - at a rate of 10 hours a day for six days a week - and the $6 million repair is almost done, mostly covered by insurance. It appears the church will reopen officially on Saturday, August 1. CBS 2 has more on the repair efforts and the expected reopening.
