Cathedral Church of St. Paul
One of the ways that communities of faith commemorate deep and powerful experiences is by creating ritual and by marking the experience and/or place as Holy. The Hebrew Scriptures are full of such rituals and markings, and the New Testament is as well.
Here at the Cathedral we invite you to join us for a time of ritual commemoration in a special service on October 3rd, 10th, and 17th. The services will be held outdoors at 5:00 p.m., and you will be asked to register in order to attend. We are repeating the service for three Saturdays so that all who wish to attend may do so. The service will be marked by prayer, silence, and ritual acts as we offer to God our lament, and ask God to help us find hope.
In order to keep everyone as safe as possible, please review the following guidelines before determining if in-person worship is right for you:
• We ask that you register in advance to be sure we don't exceed limits on gathering and for contact tracing. There will be space for 25 people to attend in the sign-up, so please include every person in your household who will be attending in your total count.
• Guidelines allow for 40 attendees total (including clergy), so if you decide last minute that you would like to attend, please do so.
• All adults must wear a mask covering their nose and mouth throughout the gathering.
• Everyone must agree to honor social distancing of at least 6 feet with people not in your family.
• If you would like to sit, please bring a lawnchair for each person in your group. If it's chilly, a blanket is a good idea too.
• It would be best if we do not go into the building for any reason, but we can make restrooms available if necessary.
• Parking will be free.
In the event of bad weather, everyone who is signed up will be notified via email of cancellation as soon as possible.
