Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.
Our random article today is St. Anthony Cathedral, Baucau.
The St. Anthony Cathedral (Portuguese: Catedral de Santo Antonio de Baucau) or just Baucau Cathedral, is the name given to a religious building that is located in the town of Baucau, in the north part of the Asian country of East Timor.
The building serves as the headquarters of the Catholic Diocese of Baucau (Dioecesis Baucanus or Diocese de Baucau) which was created in 1996 by bull Quo aptius consuleretur of Pope John Paul II. It is located in the old town, in Suco Buruma.
Located on the front of the cathedral on the sides there are two images, in white and blue, simply called tiles. The image on the left shows Mary, the right to the patron saint of the cathedral, St. Anthony of Padua, with the child Jesus in her arms. The bell tower rises above the entrance portal.
The temple follows the Roman or Latin rite and is under the pastoral responsibility of the Bishop Basilio do Nascimento.
