Upcoming Services

Worship on Sundays

We gather for worship in the Cathedral every Sunday at 8am and 10am. The 8am service has no music, while the 10am service has choral as well as congregational singing. Both services involve prayer, reading, and the sharing of bread and wine, called the Eucharist. At the 10am service there is nursery care as well as Children’s Chapel for elementary students.

Taizé Worship: Second Sundays, 7pm

We invite you to join us on the second Sunday of the month at 7:00 P.M at St. Mark’s Episcopal (4701 Old French Road) for Taize. Taizé is an evening service of quiet, contemplative prayer. It includes candlelight, scripture and prayerful meditation through song. We hope to create a thin place where you may encounter God and experience the power of silence.

Thanksgiving Day Worship: 10am

Join us to raise our hearts in gratitude and praise on Thanksgiving. The Rev. James Bernhardt, the Senior Pastor at Wayside Presbyterian, will preach and the Very Rev. Melinda Hall will celebrate the Eucharist. Our worship will have scripture readings and prayer, as well as choral music. Masks are required.

Christmas Lessons & Carols: Dec. 19

Join us for one of the most anticipated services of the year! Christmas Lessons & Carols will be held at the Cathedral on Sunday, December 19 beginning at 5:00 P.M. This service features music by the Cathedral Choir along with ancient prayers and scripture readings. A reception will follow the service.

FAQs about Worship Through COVID

Does vaccination status matter to attend worship?  

No, you can attend worship regardless of your vaccination status. Those who are unvaccinated, adults and children, must wear masks.

I have children; is there childcare for worship?

Yes, childcare is available for babies and Children’s Chapel begins September 12. Children will return for the Eucharist.

Will I have to wear a mask at services?

Masks are now required at the 10am worship service to protect children who attend and because there is singing and higher attendance at that service. At our smaller 8am service, masks are highly recommended.

What are the seating arrangements?

All pews will be open for seating, although we encourage those attending worship to consider their spacing and distancing to promote good public health precautions.

Will there be Eucharist?

Yes, at each service we will celebrate the Eucharist.  We will distribute the elements in the all-in-one, self-contained units we have been using for the past months.  They will be blessed during the service and worshippers will come forward to receive them and consume them upon return to their seating. 

What about coffee hour?

Coffee hour will take place before the 8:00am service and after the 10:00am service. We are serving coffee and will begin serving snacks when the hospitality team feels ready. We hope you will stay and enjoy coffee and conversation out under the tent.

What if I or someone else who attends later develops covid?

We ask that should you develop covid, you call or email the office so that we can let those who attended worship know of their exposure to assess their own risk.

If I feel unwell, should I attend worship?

Because covid presents in a variety of ways, we ask that if you feel at all ill- particularly have a fever, cough, headache, body aches, difficulty breathing, or lack of taste/smell, that you refrain from attending worship.  You can always watch our livestream of the 10:30am service on YouTube in real time or at a time of your choosing.
