Liturgy during the COVID-19 Pandemic

While we continue to move towards the end of this current pandemic, we will continue with just the one service on Sunday mornings. We will re-evaluate the schedule of services when restriction have been lifted. 

 

Sundays:

The Sunday morning service is at  11 a.m. This service will be both In-Person and On-Line.  

 

While our regular and most common liturgy is from the Book of Common Prayer, we will be offering a variety of liturgies in the coming months:

 

Sunday, 28 November: Advent Lessons and Carols for Advent Sunday. Find the Order of Service here!

Sunday, 5 December: Choral Eucharist from the Book of Common Prayer for the 2nd Sunday of Advent.

Sunday, 12 December: Choral Eucharist from the Book of Alternative Services for the 3rd Sunday of Advent.

Sunday, 19 December: Christmas Lessons and Carols.

 

Advent and Christmas at the Cathedral. 

 

Our Sundays@Seven series continues through most of the Fall, Winter, and Summer.  Check the schedule and Find out more about Sundays@Seven here

 

Weekdays:

Weekday Morning Prayer is available on-line only, and is live at 9:30 a.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, & Thursdays. 

 

Proof of Vaccination is mandatory for attending worship at the Cathedral, and all attendees will need to provide a name and contact number when entering the Cathedral. 

 

Attendance is limited by social distancing requirements.  Masks are also Mandatory (allowing for Provicial exceptions).

 

On-line worship is available on our Facebook page and on our Youtube channel.

Liturgy at the Cathedral -- Pre-Pandemic

While most of the Liturgy at the Cathedral tends to be traditional and formal, we have been exploring different forms of Liturgy at some services and on certain occasions.  We use the Book of Common Prayer (BCP 1962) for most of our regular services, and we use the Book of Alternative Services (BAS 1985) for the 9:15 a.m. service on Sundays, for Baptisms, and for most Weddings. For special Sundays we may use a Liturgy from another part of the Anglican Communion or even from another Denomination. At our Sundays@Seven series, we regularly use liturgies inspired by the Taizé community or create liturgies built around music, such as Jazz Vespers.

 

Generally the regular weekly worship schedule looks like this:

Sunday

7:30 a.m. BCP Morning Prayer (said, no sermon)

8:00 a.m. BCP Holy Eucharist (said, no sermon)

9:15 a.m. BAS Holy Eucharist (with organ, hymns, and sermon)

11:00 a.m. BCP Choral Eucharist (with organ, choir, hymns, and sermon)

7:00 p.m. Sundays@Seven series, offering a variety of worship experiences (offered on a limited basis throughout the year).

Wednesday

9:30 a.m. BCP Morning Prayer (said)

10:00 a.m. BCP Holy Eucharist (said)

 

Extra Services

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 announced in our Monthly Schedule of Services and Events available here!
