Holy Week Sacrament Schedule

Join us at Cathedral and St. Casimir for Holy Week. Holy means "set apart." Christians set apart an entire week - Holy Week - to recall the events surrounding the suffering, death, and Resurrection of Jesus. These events mark the accumulation of our inheritance as sons and daughters of the Living God. 

Bring your friends and family as we celebrate the most important week of our faith. Everyone deserves to know the Good News of Jesus' life, death and Resurrection. There is no better place to learn about our inheritance to salvation than our Father's House.

Bringing Christ to the Caucus

Many Catholics feel a sense of "political homelessness," as no party seems to advance a consistent ethic of life. But Minnesota Catholics have a fast-approaching opportunity to be a part of the solution.

On March 1, local precinct caucuses will be held throughout the state. Precinct caucuses are an important step in the political process, in which parties nominate candidates and form party platforms. A unified Catholic voice at the caucus level can play a large role in ending "political homelessness" by urging political parties to adopt positions that foster human flourishing from conception to natural death.

The Minnesota Catholic Conference is here to equip you to make a difference by being a voice for human dignity and the common good at your precinct caucus. Whether you're a seasoned caucus-goer or have never gotten involved before, the MCC website provides helpful resources, including: 
  • A useful explanation of the Minnesota caucus process
  • Tips for being effective at your local precinct caucus
  • Sample resolutions for the Democratic and Republican caucuses


Pilgrims Visit Cathedral's Holy Door for the Jubilee of Mercy

Seven pilgrims from St. John Vianney Church in Fairmont, MN visited the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart on Friday, Feb. 26th.  They received a tour of the Cathedral and made special devotions for the Jubilee of Mercy. We pray that these and every pilgrim to the Holy Doors of Mercy be given the grace and love that only our Father can give through our Lord, Jesus Christ. 

May God be praised for the sincere call He gives to us to find Him wherever we go. May we imitate the example of those who seek our Lord in their daily lives as well as in their travels. 

We pray for these intentions and those of the Holy Father through the intercession of Our Lady.
