40 Corrections March 2015 issue:
“Allison Eldredge” article listed the incorrect author. The correct author of this feature is Catherine Schoeffler Comeaux.
Photo credit in the Sacred Architecture article should have gone to Danielle Ducrest for her photos of St. John’s Cathedral and Lucius A. Fontenot for his photos of the Buddhist temple.
