We need Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion (EMHC) at St. Mary’s Cathedral at all Masses.
EMHC assist the clergy in distributing the Precious Body & Precious Blood of Christ at Mass. The EMHC may also be asked also take the Body of Christ to parishioners who are homebound or hospitalized. Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age, practicing Catholics, have received the Sacrament of Confirmation & if married, had their marriage blessed in the Church. It is one of the most fulfilling ministries you can do. We are in need of EMHC at all Masses. Please consider this vital ministry.
We are offering three training dates for NEW EMHC at St. Mary’s Cathedral. Each training session is 2 hours long – so please plan accordingly. You only have to attend ONE session.
Thursday, June 19 at 5:30 p.m.
Sunday, July 27 at 10 a.m.
Saturday, August 2 at 10 a.m.
Please contact Esperanza Griffith at (email@example.com) and let her know which training session you plan to attend.
Parish Photo Directory
Saint Mary’s Cathedral is creating a new parish photo directory. Thank you to the many parishioners who have already been photographed.
We have ONE LAST OPPORTUNITY for you to be included: Tuesday, June 10th, and Wednesday, June 11th. Pictures will be taken in the High School Classrooms which are downstairs in the back hallway. Photo sessions are available from 12:00 noon to 8:00 p.m. on both days.
All registered parish families will get a free 8x10 photo, and a copy of the directory. There is no charge to be photographed, and you do not have to order any pictures.
We hope you are as excited as we are to make this as complete a directory as possible, with every parishioner participating.
Sign up for a time slot now by clicking on the image below. You can also call the Cathedral office. Have your family photo be part of Saint Mary’s family history.

In the weeks ahead, our parish representative from Solutio, Inc., will be setting up the advertising for our website for the year.
Please consider participating in this effort since the revenue from the ads is what makes the website possible at no cost to the parish.
It’s a great way to get your name in front of the families in the parish. Advertisements may be purchased for a business, family memorial, or you can sponsor an ad supporting Catholic Charities, Knights of Columbus, Vocations, etc.
Please give these ideas some thought. We need and appreciate your help! If you are interested or just curious as to prices and want more information, please contact 719.694.2514 or Sponsorship@SolutioSoftware.com.
