Updates from Fr. Ubel

Dear Parishioners and Friends of the Cathedral of Saint Paul,

During the Easter season, I invite all of you to remain fervent in hope and prayer, both as a parish and as a local Church in these challenging times. All daily and weekend liturgies may be followed on our homepage link to Facebook. You all remain in my prayers daily. You are dearly missed!!

We especially pray for those people who were to be baptized and received into the Church at Easter.  Their "Lent" has been extended through no fault of their own! But that day will come and we will all rejoice with them! We also pray for our First Holy Communicants, as they await their special day.

I wrote a letter to the Editor of the Star Tribune in light of the most recent Stay Safe MN Executive Order.  Read here.

 An Act of Spiritual Communion

My Jesus, I believe that You
are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things,
and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment
receive You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart. 
I embrace You as if You were already there 
and unite myself wholly to You. 
Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.



In Christ,

Fr. Ubel

Message from the Holy Father

Our Holy Father, Pope Francis addressed the Coronavirus situation at his General Audience of March 11, given in private from inside the Apostolic Palace.  He said: 

“At this moment, I would like to address all those who have the virus and who suffer from the disease, and the many who suffer uncertainty about their own illnesses. My heartfelt thanks go to the hospital staff, the doctors and nurses, the volunteers who are by the side of the people who are suffering at this very difficult time. I thank all Christians, all men and women of good will who pray for this moment, all united, whatever the religious tradition to which they belong. Thank you very much for this effort.”
