Updates from Fr. Ubel-Blessed Palms Available Sunday

Dear Parishioners and Friends of the Cathedral of Saint Paul,


Blessed Palms will be available this weekend. They have been separated out and placed in Ziploc bags.  Without this, they would most certainly dry out too quickly.Palms are available in sealed bags of varying sizes, depending upon your needs.  Tables will be placed outside on Sunday on Selby Ave. and you may stop by to take some home with you. 

Please stop by from 9:00-11:00 a.m. on Sunday.  That way, you can have your blessed palms with you while you watch Mass online!  We are both mindful and respectful of the Stay at Home Order, so perhaps this may be combined with a necessary trip to the grocery store, etc.


If you would like to receive a copy of the April Magnificat in the mail, please call the office at 651.228.1766 and leave a message or e-mail us at We will drop one in the mail for you.

"Pray, Hope and Don't Worry!" Every day brings new challenges and new developments. You all remain in my prayers daily. You are missed!!

Livestream daily Mass is available Monday-Friday at 7:30 a.m. Please note the Stay at Home Order.

For Sunday Mass, tune in LIVE at 5:15 p.m. on Saturday evening.  The tape will be up all weekend, so that you may choose to watch at your preferred time. 

Our Cathedral daily Mass is broadcast on tape delay at 7:30 p.m. Relevant Radio, 1330 AM.  Sunday Mass is broadcast at 9:00 a.m.

Please click on that space at the top of the website page to keep informed of these developments.

May we remain serene in spirit and focused on our Lenten prayer, fasting and almsgiving. God will provide and we will continue to support one another and pray assiduously for all affected by the Coronavirus.

This website also contains each Sunday bulletin, so that those who are unable to attend Mass may remian informed. You may also access the Magnificat Online for free, thanks to the generosity of the good people at Magnificat!

AGNIFICAT temporarily available to everyone for free.

 An Act of Spiritual Communion

My Jesus, I believe that You
are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things,
and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment
receive You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart. 
I embrace You as if You were already there 
and unite myself wholly to You. 
Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.



In Christ,

Fr. Ubel

Message from the Holy Father

Our Holy Father, Pope Francis addressed the Coronavirus situation at his General Audience of March 11, given in private from inside the Apostolic Palace.  He said: 

“At this moment, I would like to address all those who have the virus and who suffer from the disease, and the many who suffer uncertainty about their own illnesses. My heartfelt thanks go to the hospital staff, the doctors and nurses, the volunteers who are by the side of the people who are suffering at this very difficult time. I thank all Christians, all men and women of good will who pray for this moment, all united, whatever the religious tradition to which they belong. Thank you very much for this effort.”
