We look forward to seeing you and may God bless you!


Join us for Mass at 11 a.m. followed by a meatless lunch at noon and an informal presentation by Bishop Gruss.

This monthly First Friday gathering takes place at the Cathedral of Mary of the Assumption, 615 Hoyt Ave., Saginaw. Even if you are only able to attend partially, for example, only Mass or only the lunch/presentation, you are welcome to come! The cost for lunch is $7. 

Registration is required only if you will attend the lunch and/or the informal presentation due to limited seating capacity in the lower level of the Cathedral. After you click "register" choose the number of people including yourself.
