What can i expect at all saints’ cathedral?
We offer two services on Sunday mornings. At 8:00 a.m. is a spoken Eucharist. This service follows the order of service and liturgy set forth in The Book of Common Prayer, which is the prayer book used by the Anglican Communion. There is no singing at this service, and it tends to be about 45 minutes. At 10:00 a.m. is the sung Eucharist, which incorporates hymns and singing from our choir. At both of these services, the member of the clergy leading the service gives a sermon and we administer the sacramental rite of the Eucharist. After the 10 a.m. service, we have a coffee hour in the guild hall. If you are visiting, we encourage you to come and meet the members of our congregation. Our shepherds for the service will be happy to assist you.
Where should I Park?
Street parking is available surrounding the cathedral. We have a limited number of handicapped parking spots in our parking lot, which is located on Marshall Street.
how should i dress for worship?
You'll see people in their Sunday best, complete with hats, at All Saints' Cathedral. You’ll also see people in t-shirts and jeans. We encourage you to come dressed comfortably, especially in the summer. We’ll be delighted to welcome you, no matter how you’re dressed.
will the service be confusing?
When you enter the church, you will be greeted by one of our ushers, and they will hand you a service leaflet. The leaflet will have the order of the service, including the numbers in the Hymnal for the songs that will be sung. Follow the leaflet, and you'll do just fine.
who Can receive communion?
No matter what church or denomination you come from, all baptized Christians are welcome to receive Holy Communion at All Saints'. If you are not baptized but would still like to join the congregation for Communion at the altar rail, simply cross your arms to receive a blessing from the pastor.
Following the service:
Following both the 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. services on Sunday, the All Saints’ community joins together in the Guild Hall for refreshments and conversation. All guests and visitors are encouraged to join us! If you have difficulty finding the Guild Hall, ask an usher or the pastor for assistance.
How do I become a member?
While we always welcome new members, our primary concern is that you feel welcomed. One of our goals is to make sure that all we come through our doors find the cathedral to be a spiritual refuge from the world; and a physically, psychologically and theologically safe place for people to explore a life of faith. If you decide to formally join the congregation, it is an easy task. We ask that you provide us with relevant contact information, and vital dates such as birthdays and anniversary dates. We would also need to know if you were baptized and/or confirmed in another denomination.
We believe that faith is a life-long journey. If you have not been baptized, we can make arrangement for proper instructions. In time, we can also make arrangements to have you confirmed or formally received into the church by our bishop. We offer ongoing age-appropriate Christian education opportunities for all of our members.
Members are expected to worship on a regular basis, pray for the well-being of the church, continue developing in their faith through formation, and support the church financially.
What is a service like at an episcopal church?
Worship varies at Episcopal churches. How services go at one church may be different from services at another. Worship also varies depending on if it's a special day in the liturgical year, such as any service during Holy Week or All Saints' Day.
