COVID-19: Update on Cathedral Services and Programs

The spread of COVID-19 continues, and with it the accelerated pace of our responses and updates to day-to-day programs, events, and services. Please read on for important information on changes to the Cathedral’s worship and public program schedule.

  • All public tours and children’s workshops have been cancelled from Saturday, March 14 until Monday, April 13. Decisions on previously-scheduled ticketed performances are currently being made. Please check the calendar for details on specific events and concerts.
  • All worship services on Sunday, March 15 have been cancelled. Instead, we invite you to visit our homepage for the livestream of a special service and message from The Right Reverend Andrew Dietsche, Bishop of New York, at 11 am.
  • The Cathedral will open to the public at 12:30 pm on the 15th. At that time, all who would like to visit the Cathedral for meditation, reflection or private prayer are welcome to enter.

  • Starting on March 15, the Cathedral Community Cares Soup Kitchen will begin offering bag lunches to clients. These will be distributed from the Undercroft of the Cathedral.

Many thanks to our congregants, community members, and friends for all your understanding as we continue to navigate this difficult situation. We will continue to post updates on this site and on the Cathedral's social media if and when more changes to public access, events, and services become necessary.
