Once listed by the Guinness Book of World Records as the planet's smallest cathedral, St. Francis by-the-Sea American Catholic Church in Laguna Beach will again bask in the spotlight Saturday when it is publicly dedicated as a national landmark. The diminutive cathedral was built with rubble from the Long Beach earthquake in 1933 in the shadow of the imposing St. Mary's Episcopal Church on Park Avenue.
