WELCOME! If you are a visitor to the Cathedral, we want you to know how welcome you are — whether you have come from another part of the country, from across the world, or simply from another parish here in the Archdiocese. Thanks, in part, to the generosity of visitors like you, we are able to celebrate the Church’s liturgy here in a fitting and beautiful way. We are also able to offer a wide range of services to needy people living in the central district of our city.

FLOWERS AT THE ALTAR. are offered by the Deuna and Lopez families in remembrance of Armando E.
