Known at that time as the largest church in Orient, the imposing red-brick structure was devastated

by the atomic bomb explosion, and a large number of parishioners were killed. In 1958, part of the

damaged eleven-meter-tall southern wall was moved to Nagasaki Peace Park. The new cathedral

was rebuilt in hornor of those lost. It was reconstructed to its present shape in 1959 and the brick

construction was renovated in 1980, a year before the Pope’s visit.
