I’m delighted to extend my warmest welcome to you on behalf of Saint Mark’s Episcopal Cathedral, located on Loring Park in the heart of Minneapolis’ arts and culture district. We’re honored by your presence and pray your experience here be both exhilarating and edifying. Cathedrals have long provided a central gathering place for the communities in which they live and serve—‘thin places’ in which the holiness of all life can be discovered and celebrated. And while Cathedrals provide leadership in addressing the concrete needs of a hurting and hungry world, we’re also called to provide for the holy hungers of the heart—the search for beauty, inspiration, and ecstasy. So you’re now invited to be fed and to become food, nourishing your community from the riches you encounter here. Welcome and enjoy!
—The Very Reverend Paul Lebens-Englund, Dean
