Your journey begins here...at Cathedral. We want to walk with you during Lent. We are here to listen, to pray with you, to serve with you, and to grow into intentional disciples with you. If you have been away from the church for awhile, welcome back. You are welcomed with open arms! If you are a current parishioner looking to become more involved, contact us so we can help get you connected. If you have questions, seek us out. We want to help provide answers to your questions and help connect you to a relationship with Jesus.

Lenten Online Prayer Wall
Please share your intentions with us! Your intentions will be remembered during Adoration each Tuesday and Thursday. You may fill out the intention in the prayer book near the pulpit or your may submit your intention here and we will place it in the book on your behalf.
Lenten Discipleship Challenge
As disciples we are called to journey together- to be companions with each other and to accompany each other during our challenges and joys. This Lent, let us model that call by sharing the Lenten journey with a friend.
Find a friend and join the Lenten Discipleship Challenge with us!
Each week, we will post a spiritual challenge based off of the Cathedral Lenten prayer booklets we distribute or the CRS Rice Bowl challenge. You will accompany each other, discuss the challenge and hold each other accountable to that challenge. We are often more successful at reaching goals when we have a partner to keep us accountable. The first challenge will be shared on Ash Wednesday and each subsequent Sunday.
If you are serious about growing your relationship with Jesus this Lent, find a partner and journey together. If you do not have a partner, please reach out to Katie Price at firstname.lastname@example.org or 217-522-3342. The Cathedral staff are committed to journeying with you and will offer to be anyone's partner if they do not have one.
