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 ribs of the vaulted ceiling are painted gray and ivory outlined in gold leaf.  Notice the ornate woodcarvings or bosses at the intersections of the ribs.  The bosses were originally installed as a means for ventilation into the attic.  Over the middle aisle there are two smaller bosses; the letters IHS stands for the name of Jesus Christ in Greek; VM stands for Virgo Maria, Virgin Mary in Latin.
