Liturgy at the Cathedral
The COVID-19 Pandemic has changed many aspects of our daily lives and challenged us to examine the way we live our lives. The same is true for our Church-life — many aspects of our daily Church-life have changed, and we are still in the process of examining the way we will be the Church in the post-Pandemic age. One of the things which has changed is our Liturgy schedule — our worship times at the Cathedral.
The previous schedule of five services each Sunday is not likely to return. Instead, we will focus our energy and resources on the 11 a.m. service on Sunday mornings, which will also be live-streamed (Please see the YouTube and Facebook links below!). Occasionally, we will have a service at 9 a.m., and we will continue to develop alternative offerings for the 7 p.m. "Sundays@Seven."
Each month will see a variety of Liturgies used at the 11 a.m. service. While the most common service will continue to be the Holy Eucharist from the Book of Common Prayer (BCP 1962), we will try to schedule a service from the Book of Alternative Services (BAS 1985), or another contemporary liturgy, one Sunday each month. We will also try to have a BCP Morning Prayer once a month. On Sundays when there is Morning Prayer at 11 a.m., we will also have a said BCP Holy Eucharist at 9 a.m.
The Calendar of Events on the Events Page gives a listing of all the Service times at the Cathedral, along with details of the Liturgy being used.
For the time being, we will be offering BCP Morning Prayer (said) at 9:30 a.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. These services will be available on-line, but you can also come and join us in the Cathedral. See below for the links to our YouTube Channel and Facebook page.
During certain times of the year, expecially during Lent, and for special occasions, additional services will be added to the schedule. These may include Diocesan Celebrations and Civic Ceremonies. These and other services, like the Annual Blessing of the Animals in early Fall, will be listed on our Events Page Calendar of Events.
