It is with great excitement that we return to offering public Mass at St. Mary’s Cathedral.  Due to our current circumstances, some things at mass will be a little different.  We are doing our best to follow the applicable guidelines and recommendations that create a safe environment and honor the governing authorities.  Thank you for your patience and understanding!

Public Mass Reopening Plan

St. Mary’s Cathedral has developed a plan for reopening our public Masses with limited capacity starting May 30th. The plan was developed in accordance with federal and state health guidelines and within the Diocese of Grand Island Guidelines. The plan involves continuing to offer a livestream option, registration for attendance, social distancing and safety measures. Note:  You are not obligated to attend Sunday Mass.  The church has dispensed us from this obligation.

Worship Aid - Now Live!

There will not be missals in the pews at this time, making it difficult to follow along with the Mass.  You are welcome to bring your own worship aid, or use St. Mary's digital worship aid.  Each week, our worship aid will be available on MyParishApp.  You may use your phone or tablet to access the worship aid.  Simply open MyParishApp, click on the Worship Aid button, click on the correct link, then turn your phone to the side and follow along!  If you are new to MyParishApp, be sure to favorite St. Mary's Cathedral after you download the app.
