Update - May 28, 2020

We are happy to announce that the Cathedral Church will tentatively be reopening its doors on Sunday, June 7, 2020, to our parishioners and guests. We will be resuming a portion of our weekend worship schedule of 7:30 am and 10:30 am Masses.

The Cathedral has successfully recruited adequate amount of volunteers to cover the aforementioned Masses. It is our intention in the future to resume the full weekend schedule. In order to achieve this, we are in dire need of more volunteers. If you are willing and able, please contact Zach Tudahl here

On behalf of the Cathedral Parish and me, your Cathedral Rector, we look forward to seeing you at the celebration of the Holy Eucharist.

Precautions for returning to Mass

All Public Masses and events cancelled until further notice.

The Blessed Sacrament Chapel will be the only area in the Cathedral Church which will be open from 9:00am to 1:00pm, Monday through Friday until further notice. Please observe the restricted areas as we do not have adequate staff to sanitize the entire Cathedral.

However, it is asked that everyone follow the federal and state mandates by keeping 6' away from your neighbor and only 9 people will be admitted at a time.

Confessions will be heard daily at the Cathedral Monday through Saturday, from 11:00 AM to 12:00PM, by appointment only (please contact the parish office at 608-782-0322, Ext. 0 to schedule your appointment).

Please note that you will be greeted at the north door of the gathering area (opposite the Cathedral Rectory), which will be the only entrance/exit available.

Join your fellow Cathedral parishioners to pray the Rosary and Divine Mercy Chaplet on Saturdays at 9am.
