Mass for Those Who Have Lost Loved Ones through Opiate Overdose - On Sunday, May 28, at the 5:30 Mass, we invite all who have lost loved ones through opiate overdose to join in prayer at the Cathedral of the Assumption, 433 South 5th Street.  Opiate-related deaths are of epidemic proportions.  Much more poignant than the staggering statistics are the loved ones we mourn.  Each death is a loss experienced by so many.  Please come join us in worship as we lift up those we mourn into the tender care of our loving Father and as we ask for God’s comfort and healing and the empowerment to be comforters and healers to one another.
