2021 Stewardship – An Act of the Heart

2021 Stewardship - An Act of the Heart
February 14, Valentine’s Day, is Commitment Sunday for our 2021 Stewardship Renewal process.  That may be one of the reasons the Stewardship Committee adopted a rather obvious as well as fitting tagline: Stewardship, a gift of the heart. We ask you to submit your form by February 14 or at your earliest convenience.
The very first question asks you to share what is on your heart for our parish family as we go forward. We look forward to hearing from you.

Sister Parish in Haiti news

Sister Parish Update
Sister Parish 

Sister Parish News from Jan 25, 2021

Recently the Cathedral wired $6,000 to Cathedral St Louis, our Sister Parish in Jeremie, Haiti.  Funds used for the lunch program at St Therese School.  Here is the thank you email Jack Lydon received, on January 25, 2021.

Subject: Thank you of the St Therese School for the lunch Program

Mr Jack Lydon,

I have a great pleasure to answer your mail. It is up to me to thank you for this help so precious in these difficult times that the world is going through. In Haiti, the socio-political and economic situation is very hard for the citizens, especially for the children. The latter are often victims of kidnappings by armed individuals. Their release depends on the ability of their parents and relatives to pay exorbitant ransoms. Children like adults live in fear. We have the feeling of being handed over to the bandits. Thus, keeping children in school and feeding them on site is a great contribution to parents. Thank you very much for the lunch Program of St. Therese School.

As for the evolution of Covid-19 for the parishioners of St Louis Cathedral in Jeremie, the situation remains stable. There are no known cases of people in the parish suffering from the Covid-19.

I wish all the parishioners of Our Lady of the Assumption Cathedral, the Pastor, and your family my best wishes for the health in the New Year! May Our Lady of the Assumption keep you under her mantle of grace! God bless you.

Fr. Marc-Arthur Emile,

Dear Members of our Cathedral:
I greet you with the joy of the Risen Lord!  As we have entered deeply into the Passion, Death and Resurrection of Christ during the Paschal Triduum, today we can proclaim with a lively faith that earth’s saddest day and gladdest day were just three days apart.  Christ has brought victory to us in every way.
Easter is celebrated for fifty glorious days beginning today culminating on the Solemnity of Pentecost. This is the “mother of all feasts” because we remember the great love of the Father for us, whose Son, Jesus Christ, by dying destroyed death and by rising restored all of us to life. This is the feast of the Passover of the Lord; the new day; the new creation; the new life; the eighth day.  Easter reminds us that we have been reconciled with God the Father.  And I look forward to celebrating Divine Mercy Sunday with you on the Second Sunday of Easter.  I brought an image of Divine Mercy with me as my gift to you – in the similar way that I wanted us to have an image of Our Lady of Guadalupe.  The image will be blessed and place in our beloved Cathedral on Divine Mercy Sunday.
The days of Easter also remind us of the beginnings of Holy Mother Church.  It challenges us to continue what Jesus taught His disciples and to live by His example.  As I preached in my Good Friday homily, “We learn to imitate Christ.”   It teaches us to take courage that despite the challenges we face in our world, our Church, our communities, or in our families, the Risen Christ, through the power of the Holy Spirit, is present and active in our lives.
As we rejoice together on Easter Sunday, I thank the many people who have worked many hours serving you so well in the Liturgies of Holy Week culminating today – Easter Sunday.. I am also grateful for the presence and participation of Seminarian Matthew Millay who gave his time to be with us for Holy Thursday, Good Friday and the Easter Vigil.  Let us pray for him and all the seminarians of the Archdiocese.
I also extend a warm welcome to those who are guests with us.  We are honored that you chose to celebrate Easter at the Cathedral.  We extend an invitation to you to join us for Holy Mass often. The Sunday Bulletin along with our Cathedral website lists our Mass times and contact information. Please call us, if we can help you in any way.  Welcome, again, and a Happy and Blessed Easter to one and all!
Very Rev. Martin A. Linebach, V.G.

Steiner-Reck Organ The 42 rank tracker organ has mechanical key action, and electric stop action. The gothic style casework is made of hand-carved mahogany.
Garden of Benevolence The stained-glass window in the garden was commissioned by the Cathedral Heritage Foundation during the 1994 renovation of the Cathedral.
Wood-carved Bosses The ornate woodcarvings or bosses on the ceiling were originally installed as a means for ventilation into the attic.
Arched Windows The Cathedral is designed in Neo-Gothic style. The arched windows of hand-painted glass allow sunlight to create beautiful images through-out the nave.
