Welcome to St. Mary Cathedral!

Greetings in Christ,

Welcome to your new parish family! I am delighted that you are here and I encourage you to be an active participant of this great community of faith.  

As our mission statement reminds us, “St. Mary Cathedral is a community of disciples who encounter the risen Lord, are transformed by his grace, and respond generously to His call.” We offer numerous faith formation opportunities for both children and adults, including an excellent Pre-K through 12th grade Catholic School. We have many organizations and ministries for service and spiritual growth as well. We are also linked with Catholic Human Services for various types of counseling and family services.

Please look through website and consider how you can become involved in our common mission as well as feeding yourself spiritually. Please let us know if there are other needs with which we can help.  

God desires to use us as ambassadors who share Christ’s message of love, hope and compassion for all of God’s children. Please know how welcome and valued you are as a member of this family of faith.

In the Peace of Christ,

Fr. Matthew Wigton,
