Welcome to St. Mary Cathedral!

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

We welcome you to the website of our parish family.  Whether you are a long-time member or just looking for information, I hope this website will be helpful to you. Browse through the pages for general information on our parish, for a link to our parish school, or for current events and information of the various ministries and programs available here. Join us for Mass and enjoy some of the many events and opportunities that are all part of the rich liturgical life of our parish each week.  I pray you will consider offering your stewardship of time and talent through participation in one of our many parish ministries.

Our parish has served the Catholic community of Gaylord since 1888.  While some parishioners were born and raised in the Gaylord area, many of us are transplants and we know that it can be difficult adjusting to a new environment.  If you are new here and are looking for a parish family, please join us.  Whether you are a practicing Catholic or someone who has been away from the Church for whatever reason, a warm welcome awaits.  You are invited to register online or by visiting the parish office during business hours.

Again, welcome to St. Mary Cathedral and enjoy our website.  Please contact us if there is anything that we can do for you, and keep us in your prayers as we will keep you in ours. 

I look forward to seeing you at Mass and greeting you in person.

   Yours in Christ,


Mass Times and Sacrament of Reconciliation
