GALVESTON — Historic St. Mary Cathedral Basilica represents the kind of sacred space that inspires generational memories that deserve a large, coffee-table tome. As Cardinal Daniel DiNardo leads Easter worship at noon today and rededicating the historic church after a lengthy restoration, some of the faithful will represent lines going back a century or more as family parishioners. It adds up to many special memories.
