For the great parade that took place on June 9, 1912, prior to the laying of the cornerstone of the new cathedral, more than thirty thousand marchers gathered in the vicinity of Niagara Square. These were supplemented by other thousands that formed a lane of humanity all the way from the Square to West Utica street, a distance of something more than two miles.
