Faith at Cathedral
Faith formation is a big deal, especially during these formative years. Proverbs 22:6 says, ``Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.`` By integrating Christ-centered principles into our education experience, we help students embrace the development of faith, the building of community, and the learning of servant leadership. While we're a Catholic school, we welcome students and families of all faith backgrounds. They're welcome, but certainly not required, to take part in our Catholic traditions.
In Everything We Do
Faith isn’t something that’s done weekly, it’s something that’s infused into everything we do at Cathedral. We can’t quantify it – it’s something you’ll feel.
From your first interaction with Cathedral, we are confident you’ll know that you’re cared for, heard, respected, and valued.
At Cathedral, we celebrate the Eucharist!
Liturgy is celebrated at 7:35 am in the Cathedral chapel every Tuesday morning, and all-school Mass is celebrated every Thursday, typically at 8:45 am in the North Gym. Students of all grade levels and faith backgrounds are invited to actively participate in Mass by assisting in various liturgical roles.
Students who are not of the Catholic faith are invited to attend and participate, but traditionally asked not to take the Eucharist.
Absolution of sins can be so refreshing and powerful! The Sacrament of Reconciliation is available every Friday at 7:30 am. Fr. Doug is also available by request during the day.
We respect the faith of our non-Catholic students, and they will not be asked to take part in Confession.
Our Campus Ministers collaborate with Cathedral staff to maximize school-wide service activities and charitable drives. Major drives take place annually during the Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter seasons. Cathedral Campus Ministers promote an ethic of caring and giving, relating the teachings of Jesus and the Church to our everyday lives.
Each grade at Cathedral holds an annual retreat away from our school facilities. A deeply relational ministry that is at once personal and inclusive is the primary tool of Campus Ministers in modeling the Christian life and teaching Christian values at each retreat.

She loves Our Lady of Guadalupe, the Vikings, and camping…in that order.
“‘My favorite thing about Cathedral is that the entire day is wrapped in prayer. We pray together as a school to start and end our days, most classes start or end in prayer, and we are blessed to be able to celebrate Mass every week! I think those conversations with God shape how we meet one another within the walls of our buildings and in our community!”
