Dear Friends,

 “In all circumstances, give thanks.” Those words from St. Paul’s First Letter to the Thessalonians have a special timeliness about them. In these difficult days when there is so much disillusionment in our Church and in our nation, I am especially aware of how much I still have to be grateful for: for the gift of life, the gift of faith, and the gift of this wonderful parish community.

Perhaps this is true for you, too. At a time when so many are struggling to hang on to hope, we give thanks to God for the blessings of faith and community in our lives. In spite of everything, we continue to carry out our mission here in our city: we gather Sunday after Sunday to listen to God’s word; we celebrate the sacraments with joy and reverence; we educate our children in the faith; and we serve the neediest among us. I pray we always will!

Now, more than ever, let us commit ourselves to this family of faith. It is our giving that makes possible so many of the good things that go on here in the Cathedral parish, week in and week out. Our giving allows us to reach out to one another and to the poorest in our midst with love and compassion. This year, let our giving express our ongoing commitment to our Catholic faith and our commitment, too, to being the Church we long for.

I ask you to consider making a sacrificial gift to help our parish meet its financial obligations and continue to carry out our mission. Thank you for your prayerful response and for all the ways you make this parish community the wonderful place that it is!
Father Michael G. Ryan
