Presentation on the Eucharist

The Eucharist,
Christ’s Farewell Gift of Peace
Led by Fr. Adrian Burke, OSB
Sunday, August 8
Cathedral Undercroft
The same conference will be offered twice –
following 9:30 am Mass and following Noon Mass
No reservations required

Join us in reflecting on the deep meaning of the Holy Eucharist. As Catholics, we believe that the Crucified and Risen Lord is truly and substantially present among us and for us in the Eucharist in several ways—in the Word, preached and proclaimed; in the gathering of the disciples; in the ministry of the priest; and in the Bread broken and the Cup shared in fellowship.

July 15 Message from our Sister Parish in Haiti


July 15 Message from our Sister Parish in Haiti
Mr. Jack Lydon,
Good morning! Thank you very much for your message after the assassination of President Moise. In Jeremie, the situation is calm. There is no problem. But the people are in a state of shock.
The Sainte Therese School is closed for summer recess. We were very happy to end the school year without any difficulty. We were afraid of the contamination and propagation of Covid-19 in the school, but the year ended with a flourish.
The new school year will begin on September 6, 2021. We will have a new class in third cycle, 9th fundamental classroom.
My thanks to you and the people of Our Lady of the Assumption Cathedral for your financial support for the school lunch program at Sainte Therese School and for your prayers. May Our Lord bless and keep you all!
Fr. Marc-Arthur Emile
Pastor of Saint Louis Cathedral
A side note: Gary Boice, parishioner and Tek4kids founder, was in Haiti at the time of the assassination. He safely made it back home this week.

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.
