Christ Church Cathedral offers time honored liturgy, music, and architecture.
We welcome people from all walks of life and faiths to worship.
Worship is one of the ways in which human beings open themselves to sacred mystery. Our hope is that the experience of God in worship—through Scripture readings, prayers, silence, music, sacrament, and relationship—increases our awareness of God’s action in our daily lives. All worship, in-person or virtual is done in communion—in communion with the worldwide church and with the communion of saints through the ages. In our worship, we transcend the divisions of the world and the values of rushing, striving, achieving and accumulating, in order to enter more fully into the Divine Life in which all human beings are sisters and brothers, beloved of God.
Faith is not a set of words-it is a living thing. It can’t be written down or linked. Our church is a community, not an idea. The only way to know what Episcopalians believe is to come and see for yourself. We invite you to worship with us, pray with us, and sing (quietly) with us.
Sunday Morning at 10 am join us for Holy Eucharist, Rite II
Wednesdays at noon is the Service of the Simple Presence.

In Person Worship
Christ Church Cathedral welcomes back our Sunday worship for weekly Holy Eucharist on Sundays at 10 am in the Cathedral. Reservations are required until we reach our 50-person capacity, masks are required, and our service has built social-distancing into our health and safety protocols. You can read a special message from the Dean regarding our opening and learn more about our health and safety protocols.

Service of the Simple Presence
We call this a “Simple Presence” service to emphasize that this will be a time for quiet reflection in God’s presence in the middle of the business of life. We will meet in the church. Side doors will be open. Shifting our location will allow us to invite visitors to come directly into the church. A sign will be placed at the corner of St. Emanuel and Church Streets inviting people to prayer and communion. The handicap ramp will be available for those who need it. Christopher Powell will be on the organ bench to provide simple music for this service. The service should last approximately 30 minutes. Please come if you can—and invite others. No reservation is required. We will make the pews in a socially distant way. Masks are required.
We hope this resource is helpful. It can be used by those who are home-bound or ill, or those who are traveling. We're eager to hear from you about your experience of using it.
