It's Almost Christmas at the Cathedral
Marketplace Application

The Cathedral Women's Alliance is pleased to extend an invitation to apply to the Marketplace at our 2nd Annual It's Almost Christmas at the Cathedral. Proceeds will benefit the Cathedral Church capital improvements fund.

The Marketplace portion of the event will be open to Crafters with hand-made items and Direct Sell Vendors. Space will be limited, so please submit your applications as soon as possible (deadline October 30th).

NEW! We are pleased to announce the option to sell on Sunday morning. There is no extra charge to remain for Sunday and there is no obligation to participate on Sunday. It is however an outstanding opportunity for additional sales. There are three Masses on Sunday morning that will provide excellent foot traffic. The decision to participate on Sunday must be made at the time of the application to accommodate event planning. The event will be advertised in the AD Times, SETV2, as well as online and on social media. Please feel free to promote the event as well.

St. John Vianney's Prayer for Priests

God, please give to Your Church today many more priests after Your own heart. May they be worthy representatives of Christ the Good Shepherd. May they wholeheartedly devote themselves to prayer and penance; be examples of humility and poverty; shining models of holiness; tireless and powerful preachers of the Word of God; zealous dispensers of Your grace in the sacraments. May their loving devotion to your Son Jesus in the Eucharist and to Mary his Mother be the twin fountains for fruitfulness for their ministry. Amen.



Holy Hour for Vocations — First Saturday of the Month — 8:00 AM Mass followed by Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, the Rosary, and Benediction.
