One of things I like best about the cathedral is that we have the presence of the Blessed Sacrament on first Fridays. I have friends here...and we always have donuts on Sunday.
When I moved here from Texas four years ago, I told my daughter I had to have a place close to a church I could walk to. I want to be independent and be able to get to church by myself. I came from a very small church of about 600 people, so this is different. There are no stained glass windows here. It's very different, it's nice. I registered as a parishioner right away because I have to belong and I have to support my church.
