Friends of the Cathedral Parish
Who are the Friends of the Cathedral Parish?
Friends are an important and unique part of the Cathedral Parish because of our particular situation. Many people who belong to other parishes come here for Mass, confession or adoration. We have a limited number of longtime parishioners, with people continually moving in and out of the parish—often very much appreciating their time here.
Friends are those who are not (or who are no longer) registered parishioners here, but who appreciate and support the mission of the Cathedral Parish in downtown Madison.
A Friend of the Cathedral Parish might be:
- someone coming here often for weekday Mass
- someone appreciative of the many opportunities for the Sacrament of Penance offered each week
- a regular visitor to our Perpetual Adoration chapel
- an occasional or frequent participant in our Sunday liturgies
- a former parishioner of the Cathedral Parish, or of one of the historic parishes merged to form it
- a regular participant in Theology on Tap
- someone who was married or received into the Church here
