"Faith and Life" Events

Praying_hands.jpgOne of the great challenges of being a disciple of Jesus Christ is discerning how to apply the truths of the Catholic faith to our real, everyday lives.  The Cathedral Parish strives to provide opportunities for people to grow in an awareness of how the Catholic faith is intended to shape our lives - from our relationships to big life decisions and all other aspects of our lives.
