Healing Day National Bell Ringing

Sunday, August 25 at 3pm

The National Park Service is commissioning, and asking, churches and people from around the country to commemorate and honor the first enslaved Africans who landed in English North America in 1619 by ringing bells.

Presiding Bishop Michael B. Curry said, "We can join together with people of other Christian faiths and people of all faiths to remember those who came as enslaved, who came to a country that one day would proclaim liberty. And so we remember them and pray for a new future for us all."

The Cathedral of the Incarnation will ring its historic bells in response to this call. The tower bells originally were cast for the 1876 U.S. Centennial in Philadelphia and brought here by train.

Summer Reading: The Universal Christ

Each week this summer, we will share a reflection on The Universal Christ by Richard Rohr. Paperback copies are available at cost in the cathedral office. This book will be the subject of our Advent Series beginning December 4th.

“You are a child of God, and always will be, even when you don’t believe it. This is why you can see Christ . . . in those who do not like you, and those who are not like you.” (page 37)

This week, as you encounter people that you do not naturally like, reflect on how you respond to them. Can you see Christ in them?

We are excited to be holding a four-day long Cathedral Chorister Academy this August! Each day will include group rehearsals, music reading class, and music theory class. In addition, lunch will be provided each day and each chorister will get a t-shirt and two private voice lessons with professional members of our adult choir. All of this is included for $100. (There are also need-based scholarships available.) High school aged choristers who would like to serve as counselors will also have the fee waived.

Registration is $100 (need-based scholarships are available): https://tinyurl.com/chorister2019

We are also looking for four or more adult volunteers to help supervise. (No musical ability is required.) If any parents would be willing to fill this role, we would be happy to waive the enrollment fee for their kid(s).

This program is open to anyone, so please invite friends and family!

Fellowship in Faith offers a rotation-based Sunday School curriculum that involves the exploration of children’s spiritual lives through art, storytelling, music and movement.

Parents are invited to join their children in the classroom for observation and participation, or they can enjoy a cup of coffee, catch up with friends, or attend one of the adult enrichment classes on offer.
