” We wished to bring a little of Rome to Orange County,” Christ Basilica Communication Director Tracey Kincaid claimed. “A lot of people do not reach most likely to Rome to the Sistine Church to see this kind of artwork. Not only that, when you go,( the frescoes) get on the ceiling when you go there so you do not obtain that up close communication.”
