For your convenience and by popular request we have added an event calendar to our “Calendar and Bulletin” page.  We hope that this new feature will be helpful in avoiding time conflicts and allowing an easy way to see all the activities planned for our parish.

1st Annual Northwest Walk for Life

January 16, 2016.  The day started with Mass at 9:00 AM at the Cathedral. There were several parishioners from St. Mary Presentation Parish, and Father Kevin was in attendance on the altar.  Following Mass, a few of us (Father Kevin Oiland, Jim and Theresa Bongers, Deacon Perry Pearman, Dennis Koesel and Marty Grieshaber) met in Riverfront Park for the rally outside in the falling snow.  We listened to some powerful speakers tell of their experiences with abortion and choosing life.  Around noon we took to the streets for the Walk under the watchful eyes of the Spokane Police Department who kept the traffic under control for our safety.  It was a thoughtful and inspiring way to reflect upon the 43rd anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision.
