Christmas & New Year's Eve

Christmas-time at the Cathedral is truly joyous, and for good reason. We have so much to be thankful for! First and foremost, we give thanks for you, our congregants and community, who sustain us month in and month out. Christmas at the Cathedral includes familiar pleasures, made new every year by the hard work and imagination of many people.

Christmas Services

On Christmas Eve, we offer two special services: Lessons and Carols, at 4 pm, is a family-focused offering, featuring larger-than-life puppets, carols, and the lilting voices of the Cathedral Choristers. At the later Festal Eucharist that evening, more bonhomie and beautiful music is the order of the hour, with the Dean and Bishop welcoming in the best of the season. At the Christmas Day Eucharist, the Dean preaches and the Cathedral Choir sings.
