Sunday mornings are the primary gathering time for the congregation. Several hundred people flow through our sacred space for worship, community, and educational opportunities. In addition to our morning services and informal community time during coffee hour, we have a number of classes offered at 9:15 a.m. on Sundays.
Each week this Sunday morning lecture series engages and challenges the parish on contemporary issues and concerns. Speakers from inside and outside the cathedral share their passion and knowledge and expand our own. The Dean’s Forum meets in the Fontaine Auditorium down the hall from the sanctuary on the second floor. A current list of upcoming Adult Forum will be listed on Event Page. You can also check our Cathedral Calendar for all know forums and events.

New to the Episcopal Church or simply looking to learn more? In a mixture of lecture and dialogue, the Discovery Series explores everything from what the rituals of our liturgy are about to basics of the Christian faith to what are the unique features of the Episcopal/Anglican tradition. This six Sunday course prepares individuals for Membership, Confirmation, Reception, & Reaffirmation of Baptismal Vows – but, there is no obligation or pressure to join the church at the completion of the series.
The Discover Series is offered each Fall and Spring. For more information, contact Canon Richard Norman.
Sunday Outreach Opportunities
Looking for a way to support our many outreach ministries on Sunday? Each Sunday Morning people gather in the kitchen to sort donations from Trader Joe’s for use in our Monday Night Supper, Thursday Warm Space, and for donation to Groveland Foodshelf. On the second Sunday of the month, people are bustling in the kitchen getting ready for that evening’s supper. Drop in on a Sunday and join us if you are able.
