Congregation Ministries & Events Online

We will keep you updated as additional online offerings become available. You can also refer to the Cathedral calendar for an updated list of online offerings.

  • Sacred Ground
    The Dean is encouraging the Cathedral Congregation to join one of two dialogue groups this winter. The first begins January 20 for 10 consecutive weeks and will be structured as a Lenten discipline and be part of Take on Lent (Wednesday evenings). It will be intense but worth it! The second group will meet bi-weekly beginning in February (day and time to be determined by the group).
    What is Sacred Ground? It is a reading and film-based dialogue series that fosters a sensitive, prayerful space for difficult but respectful and transformative dialogue on race and racism. It invites small groups to walk back through chapters of America’s history of race and racism in efforts to peel away the layers that brought us to today. Participants are invited to reflect on family histories and stories, economic class, political and regional identity as well as important narratives that shape the collective American story. We will keep our meetings to 90 minutes.
    If you are interested in signing up for Sacred Ground please contact Margaret Rawls, mrawls@cathedral.org, to be added to one of the groups. Detailed information about Sacred Ground is available at https://episcopalchurch.org/sacred-ground.
  • Virtual Coffee Hour
    Vicar Dana invites you to join her this Sunday for a virtual Congregation Coffee Hour. The Zoom link is below for the first 100 congregation members who log on (due to meeting size restrictions). Make sure you have your coffee and tea mugs ready to make a toast to Jesus and to one another! Join us at 12:45 pm online. Email congregation@cathedral.org to register.
  • Bible Study
    A congregation Bible Study will meet on Wednesdays at 11:00 via Zoom for five weeks beginning January 13. This clergy-led series will focus on readings related to Epiphany. Spots are limited for Congregation members only. Email congregation@cathedral.org to register.
  • Men’s Breakfast and Bible Study

  • Martha’s Table
    We strive to continue to feed our hungry neighbors at this particularly challenging time. Drop-off sandwiches in the bus garage. Learn more here.
  • LGBTQIA Alliance
    The LGBTQIA Alliance promotes the inclusiveness of the Episcopal Faith and the Cathedral’s message of, “All are Welcome” by helping people of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and faith backgrounds find their place in the church. For more information about how to get involved or upcoming events, email LGBTQIA@cathedral.org.
