This week the St. Joseph Cathedral hosted an evening of dinner and music for dozens of families and individuals who use the St. Francis House and Bishop Dudley Hospitality House.

As Dakota News Now reports, around 200 guests were served and entertained with a nourishing meal, gifts, and also the first concert of Christmas at the Cathedral which opens Thursday for six performances.

Executive Director of the Bishop Dudley House Madeline Shields says this is a huge Christmas gift to them.
