We, the Parishioners of St Mary Cathedral Parish, as Disciples of Jesus Christ and Stewards of God’s gifts to us, are called to live our Faith tradition through celebration of the Sacraments, proclaiming and promoting the Gospel and responding to the needs of our Parish and Community through hospitality and service to all. As the Mother Church and Cathedral Parish for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Lansing, Michigan we embrace our unique role of service and leadership for our local Church and Civic Community.
In 2016 St. Mary Cathedral will celebrate 150 years of being a Catholic parish in Lansing, Michigan. A lighted curio cabinet located at the back of the church contains pictures and artifacts reflecting life during the last 150 years. The top shelf has a picture of the first priest assigned to St. Mary, a picture frame made from the wood of an original pew, a piece of glass from one of the original windows, etc. Take a bit of time to look at our history.
On October 7th an international scriptural rosary was prayed. Msgr Michalek presided over the service.
