Welcome to Saint Mary Cathedral!
Our vision is to be a shining light of Catholic thought and action, lived out through our parish and school, as an example to all in the Diocese of Austin and the State of Texas, exhibiting integrity in all that we do as we serve Jesus Christ.
We are Catholics. We are Americans. We are proud to be both, grateful for the gift of faith which is ours as Christian disciples, and grateful for the gift of liberty which is ours as American citizens. To be Catholic and American should mean not having to choose one over the other. Our allegiances are distinct, but they need not be contradictory, and should instead be complementary. That is the teaching of our Catholic faith, which obliges us to work together with fellow citizens for the common good of all who live in this land. That is the vision of our founding and our Constitution, which guarantees citizens of all religious faiths the right to contribute to our common life together.
Freedom is not only for Americans, but we think of it as something of our special inheritance, fought for at a great price, and a heritage to be guarded now. We are stewards of this gift, not only for ourselves but for all nations and peoples who yearn to be free. Catholics in America have discharged this duty of guarding freedom admirably for many generations.

During June and July 2016
Due to the weekday closing of the Cathedral for repairs and cleaning, visitors who would like to receive a plenary indulgence by walking through the Holy Doors may go to the Cathedral Office, where they will be escorted through the doors and to the chapel in Bishops Hall.
Porque se cerrera la Catedral durante la semana para la reparación y limpieza, los visitantes que les gustaría recibir una indulgencia plenaria a través de las puertas santas pueden ir a la oficina de la Catedral, donde serán permitidos pasar por las puertas y a la capilla en el Salón de Obispos.
Donate today to help us remodel our out of date and poorly functioning restrooms. These restrooms are used by students in our school, in Catholic Faith Formation (Religious Education), and parishioners.
Can you guess how many toilets are out of order in our boys and girls bathrooms?

Prayer for Seminarians:
Lord Jesus, I ask your special blessing on all young men preparing for the priesthood in our seminaries. I pray that they will grow in faith, hope, and charity. May their hearts overflow with your compassion, understanding, and generosity, and may their desire to serve you inspire others to answer your call. Lord, give our seminarians the grace to follow you more perfectly. When they are lonely or discouraged, fill them with your peace. Jesus meek and humble of heart, make the hearts of our seminarians like yours. Amen.
