We gather together to ask the Lord’s blessing;
He chastens and hastens his will to make known

Join us for the Holy Eucharist on Thanksgiving Day. In the Cathedral adorned with the beauty of God’s abundance, give thanks for the year’s blessings, offer prayers for the world, and celebrate the Holy Communion, The Great Thanksgiving. All are welcome.

For what are you thankful?
