January 13/14 at All Masses

At all Masses on this weekend we read aloud the names of those who were baptized in our Cathedral in the past year and we renewed our own Baptismal Promises. Here the children were shown the Baptismal Font before their Children’s Liturgy session.


January 14 at 10:30 am Mass

At the 10:30 am Mass on  Sunday, January 14th, those in Thunder Bay who are discerning their journey of Faith (3 Candidates and 1 Catechumen) and their sponsors and leaders, took part in a joint Rite of Acceptance in the Cathedral.
Here the Catechumen and Candidates knocked for entry and were admitted into the Church building and then they received the Cross of Christ on their foreheads by Msgr. Stilla and on all their senses by their sponsors.

Operation Shoe Box, Another Great Success

Thanks to all our parishioners for their support, to the Parish Council for sponsoring this year’s project, to those who helped with the gift wrapping and delivery and especially to Parish Council member,  Cheryl DeLorenzi for volunteering to coordinate the entire effort this year.  Because of the generosity of our parishioners and volunteers, we were able to donate 102 filled shoeboxes and 131 pairs of socks for adults!



Children’s Christmas Eve Mass at 5:00 pm
Annual Children’s Christmas Pageant


This year’s Children’s Pageant was another great success.  The children enacted the Nativity story before an overflowing congregation that filled the entire Cathedral.  Many thanks to the children who volunteered to be part of this year’s play and especially to the adult leaders of the Children’s Liturgy who rehearsed, costumed and taught the children.

Wreath-Making in the Children’s Liturgy Session

The children were assisted by the leaders of the Children’s Liturgy Ministry to make their annual Advent Wreath in preparation for Christmas.  The wreaths were blessed during the 10:30 am Mass and brought by the children to use at home.
