Cathedral Garden Pilgrimages

God’s grace and abundance shines forth in the natural world. Join us for prayer, reflection, and a bit of history as we tour the forested trails, gardens, and lawns surrounding the Cathedral.

Filled with a variety of colorful plant life and historical artifacts, the Bishop’s Garden captures the serenity of a century walled garden. Step into this hidden jewel with the Rev. Patrick L. Keyser.
