A message from the Dean: Musical chairs!

I am very excited to share that our beloved Steinway concert grand piano is almost ready to return to the Cathedral! Our 1931 Steinway, which has been used for many years as a rehearsal instrument in the undercroft has been fully restored to its former glory. It is a wonderful treasure, which we can now fully use in support of the music program. When the piano returns to the Cathedral this summer, it will have a new home on the floor of the nave. The smaller Steinway which currently lives near the pulpit will be moved downstairs to be used for choir rehearsals and other events.

In order to make room for a 9 foot grand piano in our worship space, we will be removing pews from the South Transept (pulpit side). If you are accustomed to sitting in that section, you are invited to play musical chairs when you next come to worship! I encourage you to try sitting in a few different places and to get a new perspective on the actions of the liturgy. Discover a new place in the choir of all believers! Thanks to our new sound system, it is easier to hear from all points in the nave. I often hear from visitors and parishioners alike that the liturgy looks and feels very different depending upon where one sits. So, I welcome you to a new seat. There is plenty good room in God's house.

Yours in Christ, Michael+

Save the date: The Steinway piano dedication and opening concert will be on Sunday, September 23rd at 4pm!

We Grow

We are hiring a Family Ministry Coordinator!

The Cathedral of the Incarnation seeks a dynamic Family Ministry Coordinator to help engage families with children and young adults in intergenerational spiritual formation.

The vision for Family Ministries here at the Cathedral is founded on three core values:

Connection

Imagination

Joy

We believe that spiritual growth happens when we are deeply connected to one another and to God. We believe that both children and adults experience spiritual growth when we are immersed in an environment of wonder and playfulness, which means exploring Christian faith through language, art, movement, music, nature, and service. And we believe that spiritual growth comes to us when we find joy in our worship of God and in our community.

The ideal candidate will have experience working with children and families and share a passion for our core values.

Please visit our website for a description of the position and requirements. Resume and cover letter can be sent to Kris at kris@incarnationgc.org.

Help The INN serve hungry children this summer

During the summer months, The INN provides hundreds of additional meals to compensate for the lunches children no longer receive at school. We are collecting donations of individually wrapped snacks (nuts, chips, cookies, fruit snacks, bags of apples and oranges) for The INN. Please bring your donation to the collection area near the information table inside the cathedral.
