United in diversity

One of the Cathedral's central callings, and one of our greatest strengths, is to be a house of prayer for all people. As an Episcopal church, the Cathedral's history and faith is rooted in the Anglican Communion. Building upon that heritage, our community has grown to encompass people of many Christian traditions, people of other faith backgrounds, and people of no religious belief. Loving and accepting people from across the vast spectrum of religious affiliation does not dilute the Cathedral's own Episcopal principles: rather, it broadens our ability to understand and care for our neighbors, and provides new lenses through which to see and engage with the world around us.

The days from January 18 - 25 comprise the 2023 Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, a time when churches around the world come together to pray for increased fellowship, mutual respect, and global justice. All are welcome to join the Cathedral on Tuesday, January 24 for a special midday Holy Eucharist service in honor of this week of prayer, using readings, songs, and intercessions to inspire community.

The service on Tuesday joins our regularly-scheduled roster, which includes worship in English, Chinese, Spanish, and Japanese; music from the Anglican tradition and from worldwide composers; art and culture from all the immigrant communities that created the vibrancy of 20th and 21st century New York, and so much more. Whether you join us weekly for Sunday worship, pop in for a concert, or come for quiet meditation on your own, we're so glad to be your Cathedral.  

All are welcome to take part in daily worship services at the Cathedral, both in person and online. Each weekday, we offer a midday Holy Eucharist service, inviting friends new and old to join us in this sacred ritual. Morning and Evening Prayer services are offered Mondays - Saturdays online via Zoom. And the Cathedral's Sunday worship, from our morning Holy Eucharist service to our gatherings for Choral Evensong, are a warm and praiseful way to reaffirm and strengthen the spirit.
