Lent at the Cathedral - Online Resources
Cathedral Online Prayer Wall
At home, work, wherever and whenever, take a look at the Lenten prayer wall and for a few minutes pray for those needing support, healing, and the power of prayer. Your prayer intentions can be submitted on the page and will be forwarded to a group of individuals who constantly keep their fellow parishioners in their prayers. If you would like your prayer intention to be anonymous, you may select the checkbox on the form and know your prayers will be shared with Cathedral Parish staff only.

A Church in Crisis – Pathways Forward
The Church today faces significant challenges: an increasingly secularized society, disruptive culture, scandals, and a growing polarization caused by lack of clarity about what the Church teaches. In this short online course, Dr. Ralph Martin, director of programs in the New Evangelization at Sacred Heart Major Seminary, offers a detailed look at the growing hostility to the Catholic Church and the dilution of its teaching. This course seeks to uncover the forces working to undermine the Body of Christ and offers hope to those looking for clarity and seeking truth in our modern world. The curriculum is based on Dr. Martin’s book A Church in Crisis: Pathways Forward.
The class will be conducted online giving students the freedom to engage with the material and complete course tasks around their own schedule. The class will consist of six modules which can be completed according to the individual's own pace.
Consider this a Lenten study or retreat experience, done at your own pace. This is an opportunity to grow deeper in your relationship with the Lord and with others.
