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 restrictions have been lifted.

The Cathedral has now resumed In-Person worship on Sundays. 

 

As we are permitted to have 75% capacity at services, we will not need to pre-register at this time. Proof of Vaccination will continue to be required for entry. As well, masks will be mandatory and social distancing will be practiced. We will continue to live-stream the Sunday services, as well as Morning Prayer on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday each week.

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!
