The Cathedral is a welcoming community. We look forward to having you visit, fellowship, and worship with us! Opportunities are frequently planned for families with kids of all ages, as well as smaller group activities, like our ARISE faith-sharing groups or events with the Men of Mary Our Queen.
Cathedral has a variety of ministries to serve the parish and the greater Baltimore community. Consider sharing your time with our Liturgical Ministries, lending your talents to our Music Ministry, or gifting the love of faith as a Catechist or Youth volunteer. We also frequently organize opportunities to serve those in need, including our monthly Loaves and Fishes activities, projects to support our sister parishes in Druid Hill and in Haiti, and tasks that may be completed from home (like casserole-making!).

Think of time of personal failure. That memory probably conjures up some not so wonderful feelings. The question is, what do we do with our failures or those feelings that accompany them? No one likes failure. We also might think the Church does not like failure if we see that today’s lectionary expunges the fourth verse of Isaiah, which reveals his own sense of failure. Isaiah says, “Though I thought I had toiled in vain, for nothing and for naught spent my strength” (49: 4). Why does he say this? Because he failed to accomplish what he set out to do; turn Israel back to God. The Apostle, Paul, fails in his attempt to establish a peaceful church in Corinth. He writes this letter to them because there are factions and divisions in the community of faith. Even Jesus fails. If he is the Messiah that John the Baptist testifies to in today’s Gospel, by the world’s standards, he fails in his death.

Today we are at a threshold in time where we cross over from Christmas time to Ordinary time. We cross this threshold with the story of Jesus’ baptism. The question we may have about this event in his life is, why did he choose to be baptized? He is the sinless son of God, after all. Matthew narrates how John the Baptist’s response to Jesus echoes that question, saying, “John tried to prevent him, saying, ‘I need to be baptized by you, and yet you are coming to me?’ Jesus said to him in reply, ‘Allow it now, for this it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness’” (3:14-15).
