Lenten Evensong, Feb. 18, 4:00 pm

Our Cathedral Choir combines with the choirs of All Saints and St. Andrew’s Episcopal Churches for Evensong on the First Sunday in Lent. The traditional Anglican service of sung evening prayer rotates between the three parishes and will be held at All Saints Episcopal Church (9302 Blondo) this year. Music, scripture readings, and prayers provide an opportunity for quiet reflection as the season of Lent begins. All are welcome.


Stations of the Cross, Sunday, March 11, 7:00pm

Gather by candlelight in the darkened cathedral as a solemn procession recalls Jesus’ journey to Calvary. Each stop along the Way of the Cross—a “station”—is marked with a scripture reading, a prayer, and a meditative sung response. The liturgy mystically transports us to the ancient city of Jerusalem, preparing our hearts and minds for Holy Week.


Sunday Morning Services in Lent

(8:30 am & 10:30 am)

During these forty days, we prayerfully prepare for the annual observance of our Lord’s passion and resurrection. Our worship reflects the penitential nature of the season. We sing peaceful, reflective service music, and psalms and prayers are intoned using simple, ancient chants. Lenten worship directs our focus toward keeping the holy season and preparing our hearts for the resurrection of our Lord.
