Parish Information


From the Rector’s Desk –

As we welcome parishioners back to the public celebration of Masses at the Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption, we do so with the safety and health of everyone as the first priority as we have put into place the diocesan Protocols for Celebrating the Liturgy amid Covid19.

Everyone who visits the Cathedral for Mass and liturgies is required to wear a face covering.  This is a small sacrifice we all can make for the health and well being of everyone who visits the Cathedral Basilica.  Let us pray for an end to this pandemic, for all those who have died because of it and for all who care for the sick and infirmed.
