Cathedral Sunday set for
Sept. 12 in Oakland Diocese

Bishop Salvatore Cordileone has designated Sunday, Sept. 12, as Cathedral Sunday in the Oakland Diocese. At Masses throughout the diocese, parishes will have the opportunity to celebrate the second anniversary of the dedication of the Cathedral of Christ the Light which took place on Sept. 25, 2008.

A special collection for the cathedral will be held on Cathedral Sunday. Envelopes are available, and donations can also be made on-line at www.ctlcathedral.org. Pastors and cathedral docents will speak about developments at the Cathedral Center over the past two years.

Free docent-led tours are available at the cathedral every weekday at 1 p.m. A demonstration of the 5298-pipe Conroy Memorial Organ is included with that tour on the second and fourth Wednesdays. Special group and parish tours can be scheduled through the web site.

Updated brochures, with full information about the cathedral’s liturgies, ministries and services have been given to parishes for distribution and the brochure is also posted on the cathedral web site.
The cathedral’s 2010-2011 concert series begins Sept. 11 with a program of guitar and lute music by Mark Abdilla. Beginning in January, Third Sunday organ concerts will be held at 5 p.m. at the cathedral. The full music schedule is on the cathedral web site.

The health clinic at the Cathedral, run by the Order of Malta for the uninsured, is staffed by a full-time medical director and office personnel as well as 12 volunteer doctors, 24 volunteer nurses, and residents and physicians on rotation from nearby Kaiser Permanente Medical Center.

In a pastoral statement issued for Cathedral Sunday, Bishop Cordileone asks all East Bay Catholics to “please join me in supporting the Cathedral and its mission so that we may continue to serve our community, and know Christ better and make Him better known.”
