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!).

Rejoice! The Third Sunday of Advent is often called “Gaudete Sunday” because of the introit chant for the day: “Gaudete in Domino semper: iterum dico, gaudete.” ("Rejoice in the Lord always; again I say, rejoice.)
A whirlwind of fire, a chariot of fiery horses –these images are unsettling and would evoke fear or at least uneasy feelings in most of us–, especially without any context. The reference point is the prophet Elijah, who is mentioned in today’s reading from Sirach as well as in the gospel reading. But what do these readings have to do with Advent, and how can they inspire us during this time of preparation? Elijah was a prophet who ministered approximately nine centuries before the birth of Christ; his deeds are narrated in first Kings, chapters 17-19, and his final moments are recounted in 2 Kings 2 :1-12, which is precisely where we find the context for the whirlwind of fire.

Today is the feast of St. Lucy. We don’t know much about St. Lucy, but stories abound about her wearing candles on her head — earning herself connections to light. The image of light is striking in the midst of a dark December, leading up to the shortest day of the year in just 8 days, followed by the light of the birth of Christ a few days later. That contrast — light in the midst of darkness — is a reminder from God about who He is. Today’s response in the Psalm affirms that: “Those who follow you, Lord, will have the light of life.” Where are you finding light this Advent, this December, this year?
While there have been many apparitions of the Blessed Virgin Mary over the years, I have a great devotion to Our Lady of Guadalupe which began after watching the film “The Blood and the Rose”. The movie recounts the appearance of the Virgin Mary to Juan Diego on December 9, 1531. I see signs of God’s miraculous actions throughout the film.
