Our Cathedral Parish Nurse E.A. Cole has been chosen as “2017 CHM Faith Community Nurse of the Year!” Norton Healthcare defines a Parish Nurse as a “registered professional nurse who is actively licensed in a given state and who serves as a member of the staff of a faith community. The faith community nurse promotes wholeness of the faith community, its groups, families, and individual members through the practice of nursing as defined by that state's nurse practice act in jurisdiction in which the faith community nurse practices.” E.A. was chosen from the many outstanding Parish Nurses from our local community to receive this award.  E.A.’s faith filled dedication to the Cathedral, it’s ministries and community outreach, especially to those whose circumstances prevent them from being able to attend the Cathedral is an amazing gift to us.Thank you E.A. for bringing this honor to our Cathedral Parish!

The Steiner-Reck Company built the Cathedral’s organ in 1983, with additions made in 1994.  The 42 rank tracker organ has mechanical key action, electric stop action.  The gothic style casework is made of hand-carved mahogany.  Based on a Dom Bedos scaling, the organ is very capable of rendering the vast literature of the French and German Baroque, the French and German Romantic, and the eclectic 20th Century Periods in a highly convincing manner.  The acoustics of the Cathedral are ideal for choral and organ music with approximately a 3.5 second reverberation time.
