Worship is the core of our entire life here at St. John’s. In particular the Sunday celebration of the Holy Eucharist, or the mass, is the central act of our community life. All that we do flows from this source.
In the Eucharist, we experience the presence of the Risen Jesus: through the Word of God in Scripture and in preaching, through the bread and wine of communion where Christ is truly and fully present, in the hearts of all our brothers and sisters around us, and in the beauty of music.
In this experience we receive the transforming love of God strengthening us to do our mission in the world.
The choirs of St. John’s Cathedral serve as ministers of worship in the leadership of our common spiritual life; inspiring and uplifting the prayers of our congregation – through music – to a closer communion with God.
Our music programs aspire to uphold the Christian values of prayer, community and service, and to model those values in life.
