The Eucharist is the heart and the summit of the Church’s life, for in it Christ associates his Church and all her members with his sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving offered once for all on the cross to his Father; by this sacrifice he pours out the graces of salvation on his Body which is the Church.

First Communion for children in grade 2 at St. Mary’s Cathedral is celebrated on a Sunday during the Easter Season. Children attending Catholic Schools are prepared for this sacrament by their teachers. Every year our Parish offers a Catechetical Program for students enrolled in Public/Private schools (but open to all) who wish to receive Jesus in the Sacrament of the Eucharist. All candidates celebrate the Rite of Enrollment for First Communion with the Parish Community.
The Sacrament of Reconciliation is celebrated before First Communion and usually takes place within the Communal Penance Service at the Cathedral during Lent.
In order for the men’s shelter to open for the winter we need men to sign up. We need your generosity. We hopefully will begin December 4th and go to the end of April. If you could volunteer for one of these shifts one day each week it would be a great help. Training will be provided. Please contact Ann Lyng at email@example.com to sign up or for more information.
