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 Ambry is the large glass case in the rear of the church that holds the sacred oils used throughout the church year.  The Oil of the Sick is used to anoint those who are seriously ill and bring Christ’s healing to them.  The Oil of the Catechumens is for those who are preparing for Baptism.  The third oil is the Sacred Chrism, which is used to anoint the heads of those being baptized and for persons being confirmed.  It is also used to anoint the hands of priests when they are ordained.

The Paschal or Easter Candle is used each day of the Easter season and for baptisms and funerals throughout the year.  The new candle is lit during the Easter Vigil service and remains on the altar until the end of the Easter season when it is returned to the back of church by the baptismal font.

The wooden statue of the Virgin Mary is carved of linden or basswood and is original to the Cathedral.  The crown of stars she wears represents that she is the Queen of Heaven.  The serpent and apple under her feet represent Mary’s triumph over evil and sin.
