The Cathedral of St. Peter the Apostle in Jackson, MS was established in 1842 as a parish church for the growing Catholic population in the area. In 1875, it was designated as a cathedral and underwent renovations to expand and improve the building. In the early 1900s, the cathedral was heavily damaged by a tornado and was rebuilt in a more modern style. In the following decades, the cathedral continued to serve the local Catholic community and underwent further renovations and improvements. In 2018, the cathedral celebrated its 175th anniversary.

We installed new Vermont Semi-weathering Green slate throughout the church campus. We also replaced all of the flashings with new copper work. We then re-roofed the steeple with Vermont Mottled Green and Purple slate and gold-leafed the cross. In addition, we restored the brick and masonry work on the bell tower and completed necessary structural work by adding I beams in the steeple.
