The Very Reverend Martin Diaz, Rector of the Cathedral of the Madeleine, the Catholic Cathedral for the Diocese of Salt Lake City has announced the creation of a fund for the Cathedral of Notre Dame de Paris. Rev. Diaz said, “the Choir of the Cathedral of the Madeleine has had the honor of celebrating Mass in the Cathedral of Notre Dame on several occasions. We feel it is important, as a fellow Catholic Cathedral, to reach out and help this icon of Paris in her time of need.” Rev. Diaz continued, “The very thought of losing your most sacred space in a fire is beyond words. So, besides sending our prayers, we will be accepting donations from Catholics and non-Catholics alike. If you have ever been to the Cathedral of Notre Dame, or have dreamt of going there, we invite all of you to contribute to the rebuilding of the Cathedral of Notre Dame.

 

We will be accepting donations at Mass or you can send or bring your donation to the Cathedral of the Madeleine offices.” Rev. Diaz encouraged businesses, foundations and families to give and send a message that we are with the people of Paris and we will help them rebuild their cathedral. The  Cathedral to Cathedral  collection will run through May 12th. 

The Cathedral of the Madeleine offices are located on 331 E. South Temple and office hours are Monday through Friday, 9:00am to 5:00pm. You may also call the office, 801-328-8941, to use your credit card. Please make a notation the gift is for the Cathedral of Notre Dame. The Catholic Diocese of Salt Lake City has posted a link to the Cathedral of Notre Dame de Paris on its Facebook page which the Cathedral of the Madeleine has also shared as another way to donate.
