Jesus said to them, “Peace be with you. As
the Father has sent me, so I send you.” And
when He had said this, He breathed on them
and said to them “Receive the Holy Spirit.
Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them,
and whose sins you retain are retained.”

will be presented from different perspectives. Consider
attending for any adults hoping to learn, or to refresh their

prayer of the Catholic Church. A historical background of
its origins, as well as guided evening prayer practice sessions will also be provided. Childcare will be available

Visitation Chapel to hold final Mass on May 7 –In June of 2011, Archbishop Aquila opened the Visitation Chapel,
located next to the abortion facility in downtown Fargo. Every Wednesday during the past four years, Mass has been offered and Eucharistic Abortion held during the day for the intentions of the women entering the abortion facility, those who
work to promote abortion, and for the furthering of a culture of life in our society. This past March the building where the
Visitation Chapel is located changed owners. As is common when rental property changes, lease terms change as well. As a
result, our lease will end May 31. The final Mass will be offered on Wed., May 27 at 8 a.m., followed by Eucharistic Adoration until Noon. The Visitation Chapel is located at 502 1st Ave. No. Fargo. All are welcome to attend. Our prayer to further the culture of life will continue. Beginning Wed., June 3, you are invited to be part of the Prayer Apostolate for Life by
joining us every Wednesday between 10-11:30 a.m. at the Pastoral Center, 5201 Bishops Blvd., Fargo. The prayer time will
open with the recitation of the Rosary, followed by private meditation, and close with the recitation of the Chaplet of Divine
Mercy at 11:15 a.m. Please come to pray in solidarity for all the babies whose lives are threatened daily by abortion, for the
conversion of hearts of those involved with abortion, for our side walk advocates and the needs of the post abortion ministries in our diocese. For more information contact the Respect Life Office, 701-356-7910 or

Bishop John Folda and the faithful of Fargo welcome you to the Cathedral of St. Mary. The word
‘cathedral’ originates from a Latin word, cathedra, meaning seat. The Cathedral Church serves as the
seat of the Bishop in a particular Diocese. All visitors who are not of the Roman Catholic faith are
welcome to join us in prayer but to refrain from receiving Holy Communion. Reception of Holy
Communion is a sign of unity of faith and full membership in the Catholic Church.
Together let us pray for the eventual unity of all believers.
Even if you can’t join us in person,
you can experience the Mass at St. Mary’s Cathedral!
Wednesdays at 9am on Fargo Cable Access Channels 56 & 68
Tell your friends & spread the word!
