Liturgy during the COVID-19 Pandemic

Currently, all public worship in our Diocese has been suspended. Funerals and Weddings may proceed with limited capacity and restrictions. As a result our regular schedule of services has been suspended.


As an alternative, we now offer online worship through Facebook and YouTube. Please join us live or join us when you are available, the videos will be available on these platforms for you. We are delighted to welcome people from many different parts of our country and our world as we worship together in this new way! You can join our worship right here on this page on  our Facebook Feed.

Live Worship Times: 

Sunday @ 11:00 a.m.: BCP Morning Prayer (sung with organ, hymns, and sermon)

Tuesday, Wednesday, & Thursday @ 9:00 a.m.: BCP Morning Prayer (said)

 

Liturgy at the Cathedral

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!
