It is time for another Parish Mission! These only occur every 4 years, and we are excited to have it occur very soon – October 16 – 20th – during this Year of Mercy!
The leader of this Mission is Msgr. Timothy Cronin from the Archdiocese of St. Louis.
In addition to being a priest of the Archdiocese of St. Louis, he was Msgr. Kurwicki’s classmate in seminary, and a Pastor-mentor for Fr. Duncan during his Theology I year at Kenrick-Glennon Seminary.

The St. Joseph Cathedral Golf Tournament raised $17,500. The proceeds were presented to St. Joseph Cathedral Parish, St. Joseph Cathedral School, and St. Joseph Cathedral Athletic Committee. Thank you for all of your hard work in making this a successful Parish event!
Msgr. Kurwicki, Jim Vignola and Clarence Denkler presented the final check to Central Bank on the 2008 two million dollar loan on the School addition. This brings that 5.6 million dollar campaign to a very successful conclusion thanks to your prayers, support and gifts. Those debt reduction envelopes work!

Olivia and Addison Monnig’s brother went to the Baltic countries and they insisted he take Fr. Faraway with him.

Two Cathedral Parish families took Fr. Faraway with them on recent trips. Last weekend, Fr. Faraway visited Springfield, MO with Daniel (2nd grade) and Nick (preschool) Morris. Fr. Faraway attended Mass at Immaculate Conception parish with Daniel and Nick – as well as their aunt, uncle, and cousin. The Brunnert Family recently took Fr. Faraway to Boston and among the historic sites they visited was the Old North Church. This was the church where the Patriots hung lanterns – one if by land, two if by sea. Remember to take Fr. Faraway with you on your travels and keep the pictures coming – send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Meystrik Family recently took Fr. Faraway to Conception Abbey and to visit the Carmelites staying in Clyde, MO with the Benedictine Sisters of Perpetual Adoration.
