Save the Date

Postcard of Cathedral, Fort Wayne, Ind.

Wanted to share this since I have received such overwhelming support from all of you.

Dear Kristina,
Msgr. Schulte has asked me to respond to your request to receive adult Confirmation here at the Cathedral. He feel that he can grant your request. Bishop Rhoades will be celebrating Confirmation for the adults on May 23, 2010 at 11:30 a.m.. In order for you to do this, you would need to attend the preparation class for that here at the Cathedral on Sunday, April 25, 2010, at 2:00 p.m. in the Parish Center Library. Please let me know if you are attending, and I will add you to our class roster. May the Lord bless and keep you always.

Sr. Marilyn Ellert, OSF
Pastoral Associate

It may seem like such a small gesture on the part of the leadership of Cathedral however, this is the best gift ever and I will never, ever forget the kindness that has been extended to me.

I've already left a couple comments, one being quite long... well, this one will be too! ;)
---I am 14,(born Oct.28 '95) and have lived in Fort Wayne my entire life. I have only moved once; We used to live in North Highlands, and in 2001 we moved to Wild Wood Park for a bigger house. I go to Trinity English, and have attended ESM for school since Kindergarten... next year I am going to Concordia.
I could go on and on about my memories of growing up in Fort Wayne, but I am sad to say downtown is not the hi-lite of my memories... I am ashamed to say that I used to hate Fort Wayne and wanted to get out of here as soon as I could... until recently I have been quite interested in the history of this town, seeking old pictures and stuff to see how it's changed... after a week of staying up till 3 reading about Fort Wayne's history, I have learned to love it and appreciate it.
However, I am sad to see what has become of downtown... it looked so cool in those old pictures... filled with activity and many cool buildings... now most of them are gone, cool stores such as Murphy's are gone, and the trolley tracks have been buried under asphalt... there isn't much to do downtown anymore... it's mostly business/office stuff...
However, Fort Wayne is focused on downtown revitalization right now... it has started with the building of Parkview Field, a new baseball stadium home to the Tin Caps (yes, the Wizards are no more.)
It is pretty impressive, and is still being worked on.
They are also restoring the courthouse.
Nothing much else has happened, but I hope that one day I can see downtown Fort Wayne busy and cool like it used to be.
I have always thought it would be cool to buy a condo in Midtowne crossing to get a taste of living downtown.
Sorry for this long post... and I am glad I found this blog!

Hi Kristina! I am so excited to find your blog! I was actually just searching on google for a picture of Fort Wayne where I was born and it led me to your blog. I haven't read all of it yet, but I love it! I'm fascinated by the past (I'm a college professor) It appears to me from your pictures that you are younger than I. I was born in Fort Wayne (Lutheran Hospital) in 1959. I lived there until the Summer of 1966 when we moved to Muncie, then later to Pennsylvania. But I've always felt so drawn to my Fort Wayne past and wished I knew more about it. I've visited there a few times, including twice to Harry Potter release party at a charming bookstore there. I attended Northcrest school, my father taught school in Fort Wayne and also pastored a small church. I am anxious to read more of your posts and maybe one of these days I will write a little bit about my early memories of Christmas in Fort Wayne (the song "Silver Bells" always makes me think of it!) Thanks so much for this marvelous blog!

My heart sank when I saw that the train depot on clinton and fourth is half gone... was really hoping they'd save it... could have been a really cool building.
