Exploring New Monasticism with the Center for Spiritual Imagination

Wednesday, May 25 at 7pm

The co-founders of the Center for Spiritual Imagination along with members of the Community will share the different ways one can engage with New Monastic practice, whether you are exploring a Rule of Life for the first time or are interested in a deeper commitment to a life of contemplation and just living.

The evening will also offer a comprehensive look at the Center’s 3-year formation program which combines experiential classes in contemplative spirituality and theology, small group work based on the tools of 12-step spirituality, Clinical Pastoral Education methodology, retreat work, one-on-one mentoring, and a commitment to the community’s rule of life. This formation program helps prepare participants for a committed vowed new monastic life of prayer and service. Details on this formation program and how one can apply will be offered.

Dean's Forum

Sunday, May 15 at 10:15am in the Mercer Library

The final Dean's forum for the season of Easter will center on the disciples reactions to Jesus' resurrection and ascension brought by Luke's second section of his gospel which we call the Acts of the Apostles. Join Dean Sniffen, Canon Griffith, and your fellow Cathedral congregants as we conclude a year of great discussions and deepening faith.

Fellowship in Faith

Each week, Fellowship in Faith offers a variety of developmentally appropriate and creative scripture explorations activities for children ages 18 months–5th grade. Through storytelling, arts, and play, children will develop personal connections with the biblical and liturgical stories we hold dear. We gather at 10am in Mercer for snacks and fellowship. Classes for children and adults begin at 10:15am. While wearing a mask is now optional inside the Cathedral building, masks are still required to be worn covering the mouth and nose while inside Fellowship in Faith classrooms. Due to the size and air circulation of our rooms, masks will be required until further notice.

Our final Fellowship in Faith of this program year will be on May 22nd with our End of the Year and Communion Celebration!

If you have any questions regarding Fellowship in Faith please contact Kate Akerman.

Mystagogia: Living into the Mysteries of our Faith

May 18 and May 25 from 7-8:30pm

Wednesdays evenings at the Bishop Walker Guesthouse, 59 3rd Street from 7pm until 8:30pm.

Mystagogy is the third stage of a larger process of full initiation into the Church called the Catechumenate ("resounding in the ear"). The process of reflection, meaning and discernment that takes place over the fifty great days of Easter is often referred to by the Greek word, mystagogy, which basically means living into the mysteries. For more information please email Fr. Michael mdelaney@incarnationgc.org or register on Realm.

Celebration Sunday is Next Week!

We have a lot of celebrating to do! On May 22nd at the 9:15am Cathedral for Kids mass we will honor our Communion Instruction group, Youth Confirmands, and High School Graduates. The celebration continues following mass in the Mercer School with our End of the Year Party during Fellowship in Faith. I hope you'll join us in celebrating our young people and all these special milestones in their lives.

Opportunities for Healing Prayers and Anointing

"Are any among you suffering? They should pray. Are any cheerful? They should sing songs of praise. Are any among you sick? They should call for the elders of the church and have them pray over them, anointing them with oil in the name of the Lord. The prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise them up." James 5:13-15

The Pastoral Care Team is comprised of lay and clergy members answering the call to serve and minister to the pastoral needs of the sick, the homebound, those in hospitals and anyone experiencing a time of need. Team members bring communion to those unable to come to church. We will be offering healing prayer during communion and immediately following the 8:00am and the 11:15am Sunday masses at the Altar Rail around the Baptismal Font. If you, a friend, or a family member are homebound or in the hospital, please email the Cathedral office so we can hold you in prayer and provide a visit if requested.

We Pray

You can submit prayer requests online here.

A Prayer for Peace

You Lord, make wars cease to the end of the earth; you break bows, shatter spears, and burn shields with fire. And so we ask you now to save the lives of many people in Ukraine. Make a peace that is strong and not weak. De-escalate this crisis. We hear of wars and rumors of wars, but you Lord are our rock, our fortress and our deliverer. Our hope is in you. And so we address the nations now. In the name of Jesus we say: “Be still and know God! He is exalted among the nations; he shall be exalted in the earth. Amen.
