We would like to remind the faithful of our new parish website, marzaiacathedral.org. The site was designed for our parishioners to be able to access everything in one place. You are able to pay your membership, make a general donation, update your contact info, donate to the PDC and much more!
Many faithful members have asked how they can make an offering to our church during this National Pandemic so we hope these resources will be used accordingly. This is a free-will offering to contribute to the parish during these difficult times for all of us.
We appreciate and express our deep gratitude to whomever would like to make an offering to the Church from their own good will. No one is obliged to do so, but your helping to sustain the work of your holy Church is always greatly appreciated. May the Lord bless each and every one of you, and may He accept your prayers to end this pandemic throughout the world. Amen!
