              Year of Prayer

    September 22, 2018 - November 24, 2019

    Father,
    You invite each of us to share in the life and ministry of your Son, Jesus. Send your Holy Spirit to form our parish as a community of missionary disciples.
    Teach us how to hear Jesus, to love Jesus, and to share your gift of salvation with everyone we meet. Through the witness and intercession of Mary, guide me to deepen my commitment as a disciple of Jesus.
    Lead our parish to grow as an intentional community, committed to go and announce the Gospel of the Lord. We ask these blessings in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ.
    Amen

  • 150 Years as a Parish !!

    In 2016 St. Mary Cathedral celebrated 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.

    Information and photos about the current church building and our history can be found above under About Us or by clicking Tour of the Church and Church History.
