From the Rector
I am delighted to welcome you to our site!
The Cathedral Family is home to a wide diversity of people – college and technical students, families, singles, retirees, and visitors who pass through on their travels up the North Shore of Lake Superior. I continue to marvel at the hospitality that our parishioners offer to all who join us for Mass. We would love to have you pray with us!
Our parish proudly hosts many diocesan events. As the Cathedral for the Diocese of Superior, we are honored to serve the local Church for the Chrism Mass, Ordinations, Diocesan liturgical celebrations, and special events.
Our welcoming community is blessed to gather in the magnificent Cathedral. Renovated in 2006, the building is a beautiful structure that provides a powerful space for worship, reflection, and celebrating our Catholic identity as disciples of Jesus Christ. We would love to have you join us!
