WORSHIP AT THE CATHEDRAL

The Cathedral offers worship throughout the week. Please see below for times, services and their location within the Cathedral. St Mary's Chapel is accessible through the Sanctuary doors in the Narthex. 

What Happens After Sunday? Here's How We Welcome Newcomers by Marilyn Hobbs

At our "Invite / Welcome / Connect" workshop in November, the group was discussing what happens after a newcomer is greeted at a service by a member of our Hospitality Committee. (They're the people standing in the Narthex before and after services wearing big tags that say, "We're Glad You're Here." The wording on those tags was one product of the workshop!) Here’s what happens after the newcomer is greeted by a Hospitality Committee member: The newcomer is introduced to at least one other parishioner. He or she receives a red Newcomers’ folder. The folder contains information about cathedral history and architecture; our annual brochure with information about education and arts programs; and information forms so that we may know who THEY are and what they would like to do. When newcomers return those forms, the assistant to the clergy — that's me, Marilyn Hobbs — has the demographic information entered into our church database and makes sure the person’s e-mail address is entered into our system so they start receiving Crosstown, our weekly e-mail blast, and other online communications about events, musical performances, service time changes, deaths, and other news. If the person is interested in becoming a member, I arrange for that to happen. I follow up personally with each one to welcome them and answer their questions. If newcomers indicate an interest in a particular area or ministry, I notify the heads of those groups and pass on the contact information for follow-up. Occasionally, someone just prefers to be with us while maintaining a special nonmember status and that’s okay, too. As we proudly say: All are welcome!
