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.
