At the heart of the life of the Cathedral is our liturgy, with its thoughtful preaching, fine choral music, and strong lay participation. Our leaflets are complete and user-friendly, and we always make every effort to make all visitors feel welcome.
Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
Worship the Lord with gladness;
come before him with joyful songs.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE SUNDAY SERVICES?
- The 8am service is a Eucharist service that is contemplative, spoken, and uses the traditional language or Rite I. It includes a short sermon.
- The 9:30am service is our family Eucharist, with strong congregational singing using a variety of resources, a brief children’s homily, and choral music by the Girls Choir and the Schola Cantorum. In order to make it more appropriate for children, this service is about 45 minutes in length, and is followed by Christian Education for all ages.
- The 11:15am service features strong congregational singing and choral music by our Choir of Men & Choristers. The preaching relates the scriptures of the day to our daily lives, and the choral music is carefully chosen to relate to the themes of the season.
WHAT IS MORNING PRAYER?
- This is a brief service that includes the reading of scripture, psalms, canticles and prayers
- Morning prayer originated after the Anglican Reformation, when Thomas Cramner reduced the eight monastic offices to two services (Morning and Evening Prayer)
WHAT HAPPENS AT THE DAILY MASS?
- Daily Mass is a 45-minute Eucharist service
- There are readings of a New Testament Epistle, Psalm, and Gospel
WHAT IS A MASS OF ANOINTING?
- A mass of anointing is a Eucharist service that includes anointing with oil
