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.

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!
