Holy Sepulchre Cemetery Looses Bishop

Bishop Floyd L. Begin died in 1977 and was buried in Hayward at the Holy Sepulchre Cemetery. I was at this cemetery recently taking pictures. If I had known what was up and coming I would have found where he was, and made sure to take of a picture of his resting place. We rabbits however can't always know everything.

Bishop Floyd L. Begin was from Cleveland, Ohio and was the founding Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Oakland on January 27, 1962.

When Bishop Floyd L. Begin passed away he was interred in the Holy Sepulchre Cemetery where he rested for thirty one years.

A new cathedral has recently been built in Oakland by Lake Merritt. This cathedral opened about a month ago.

Yesterday, Sunday, Bishop Floyd L. Begin was moved from Holy Sepulchre Cemetery and taken to the new cathedral, the Cathedral of Christ the Light.
