Deans' Note August 29, 2021

We are so pleased that choral worship returns to St. John’s Cathedral this Fall, beginning with the Feast of St. Michael & All Angels on October 3. Starting with our masked and fully-vaccinated staff musicians, we will begin the choral season with plans for a musically robust liturgical year.

The chanted Office of Compline returns on first Sundays of every month, October through May, at 8.00pm. These beautifully meditative candlelit services are some of the oldest in our tradition. Everyone is welcome to attend the service and partake in delicious food and drink at the social hour following the service.

Also, we have been given permission from the diocese to restart our in-person Cathedral Choral Academy for children, and now is the time for families to enroll their children! This fully-funded music education program offers 100% scholarships to every student, and is open to all families, regardless of musical ability or religious affiliation. Please contact Mr. Stephen Salts for information.
