A Cardinal who came to Romeyn Falls in 1869 who built the Grandenetti Cathedral.
Grandenetti started building his cathedral in 1869, when he arrived and it was still unfinished when he died in 1908. His passion to glorify God was the catalyst towards the purchase of more land for the construction of additional catacombs, chapels and vestries. Eventually the Cathedral and surrounding religious estate consumed over 14 city blocks.
Grandenetti is a likely reference to the comic book artist Jerry Grandenetti.
