Mission We love and serve God and our neighbors, His people.

As a center city parish and as caretakers of the Cathedral, we have the special mission of welcoming all people to our mutual house of worship. We reach out to all in the parish and present different opportunities to get involved in the Parish community. We provide means and develop strategies for helping parishioners to know one another better and join their efforts towards building a Community that is active and committed to the service of God and neighbors. We also build Parish Community by reaching out to inactive parishioners to develop and plan for improving friendships among all parishioners. We provide for and encourage full and active participation in Holy Mass. We strive for increased participation — spiritually, physically, and financially — in all activities of the Parish Church and Community
