Today everyone is searching for purpose in conventional church practices - even the Mass is being revised - but its meaning is always the same.
Sometimes the Mass is conducted in a more informal manner in order that Cathedral students may find a deeper meaning. More emphasis was placed on the Mass as a celebration of Christ's Resurrection.
Many Masses that were offered throughout the school year at the Cathedral for students gave them spiritual enlightenment. The Golden Masses profit many needy families in the parish area.
It was the cooperation of students and faculty that made these Masses possible. It is hoped that through their help they will continue to be successful.
