Congratulations to the winners of the Knights of Columbus Scholarship for Outstanding Service!
Congratulations to Stephen Mabry and Will Barron, the two recipients for the Knights of Columbus Scholarship for Outstanding Service Award. Both Stephen and Will are Eagle Scouts and have actively participated in Cathedral Youth Group, various Cathedral Ministries and their school and community. The Knights of Columbus has awarded each a $1,000 scholarship towards their education. As Catholics, we are called to actively serve others and we hope you will join us in congratulating these two high school seniors in living out their faith through service to others.
Stephen Mabry will attend University of West Virginia
Will Barron will attend the School of Architecture & Urban studies at Virginia Tech

Accompany your child and other children of the parish on their faith journey. Consider getting trained in VIRTUS (Safe Environment) as it is now offered online. It is a two-hour commitment and will give you life long practical advice on protecting your child, particularly in the realm of social media. It will allow you to step into a role for helping other children grow in their faith.
FINAL WEEKEND FOR FOOD COLLECTION
Our music and movement program for children ages 0 to 5 and their caregivers is going virtual.
Please contact Joy Weir at
to join our Tuesday gathering at 10:00am on Zoom.
Is your child missing Children’s Liturgy of the Word? Well we are missing them! We would love to connect with our parish children ages 3-8 that like to discuss the Gospel together. Please email Joy Weir at
so we can contact you about gathering virtually Sunday mornings (it will be prior to the Cathedral Sunday Mass, not during).
