OUR SACRED PURPOSE at St. Benedict Cathedral is to become HOLY DISCIPLES, generous with God’s gifts for building the Kingdom, on the path to heaven. In the midst of a welcoming community in the Benedictine tradition, we embrace the teachings of our faith by celebrating Word and Sacrament as we grow in our personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
