The National Cathedral’s Sermon Archive represents nearly 20 years of Word and wisdom delivered from the Canterbury Pulpit by Cathedral clergy and guest preachers. From high feast days to Ordinary Time, memorials to special services, the Cathedral’s sermons continue to inspire days, months, and years later.


Sermons are listed by default in descending chronological order. To filter by preacher, type a surname in the search box and choose from the suggested list. Use the drop-down filters to browse by date or service type.

This archive is a work in progress: thank you for your patience as we work to add preacher tags and available material such as audio and video files.

Please note: Sermons dating from Dec. 30, 2015 onward are presented in HD video. Sermon texts are available when provided by authors. Sermons prior to 2013 will not include video. 

To view webcasts of full services, visit the Cathedral’s YouTube page, or Recent Webcasts for those aired within the last month.
