Thanks for making September 14 so special for Feed My Neighbor on Give for Good Day. We are so grateful for those who helped spread the word, who decided to become volunteers, and to those who donated staples to the lunch program. 

The total funds raised:  $4397 

Filipino Festival September 24

Our 35th annual observance of the Feast of St. Lorenzo Ruiz de Manila at the Cathedral will be Sunday, September 24, at 5:30 pm. Father Chandler will be the Principal Celebrant for the Mass, along with some other priests who are looking forward to concelebrating Mass for the feast.  This annual celebration of Filipino faith, tradition and culture, and the generosity of the Filipino Community, continue to be a blessing to the Cathedral parish and to the San Lorenzo Ruiz-William L. Fichteman Scholarship Fund, which helps students whose parents have limited income to attend a Catholic school.  We are so grateful to be able once again to offer a traditional Filipino buffet meal this year. We will still offer a “carry out” option for those who cannot stay to dine in. The cost is $15/ages 13 and over; $10/child.

We remain most grateful to the Filipino community for sharing your rich culture with kindness and generosity.  Please plan to attend and invite your friends to as well.

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.
