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.

One of those congregants will be wearing his full Knights of Columbus regalia. Alfio A. Tropea was baptized, catechized, confirmed and drawn into service there.
