    • Cathedral Gala, Thursday, May 8, 2014

      Saint Mary Cathedral Gala
      Thursday, May 8, 2014
      Historic Driskill Hotel

      Join us for Cathedral Gala 2014!  It's a great night of fellowship and fun, all for a good cause.  Help us support Catholic education.  Did you know that 31% of the students at Cathedral School receive Tuition Assistance?  Without your support and generosity, the Cathedral wouldn't be able to reach out to families who want to provide their children with a quality Catholic education. Purchase your tickets today!

    • Give Your Input Today!
      With the help of the Diocese's consulting agency, they have developed a survey that will guide us in developing a pastoral plan that responds to the needs of the diocese. So that we can get a full picture of what is important to the people of the diocese, we ask that you not only take this survey but also share it with as many people as you know here in the Austin area. This includes your friends, family, co-workers, neighbors, even those who are no longer practicing the Catholic faith!  Click here to complete the survey.
    • Cathedral Rose Window Sun-Catcher Ornaments
      Upon the completion of the Exterior and Rose Window Restoration, in December 2013, the Cathedral commissioned a special keepsake of the beautiful Rose Window located in the choir loft of Saint Mary Cathedral.  These special keepsakes make wonderful gifts for friends and family.  Get yours today!

      You may purchase your Rose Window Sun-Catcher Ornament in the Cathedral Office during the week from 8:30-5 or on weekends in the Ave Maria Gift Shop from 11-2.
    • Help Fight Hunger
      The St. Vincent de Paul, Saint Mary Cathedral Conference, challenges you to participate in the annual Feinstein Foundation Giveaway to Fight Hunger (which begins March 1 and runs through April 30).  The Feinstein Foundation matches a proportionate amount of the funds St. Vincent de Paul collects during this time.  Your contributions enable St. Vincent de Paul  to stock our food pantry throughout the year.  You may give electronically via E-Giving and designate “St. Vincent de Paul Feinstein” under Special Giving Opportunities. You may also use the pink envelopes in the Cathedral for your donation to this worthy cause.  For additional information visit www.feinsteinfoundation.org.
