The Cathedral of Saint Mary of the AssumptionEspanol
upcoming events
As part of our 2014 Stewardship Campaign, parishioners express in their own words why they love St. Mary's Cathedral.  We invite you to attend Mass, a music concert or other program and discover why. 

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.
