Worship is at the center of the life of the Cathedral parish. The Holy Eucharist — also known as the Mass, the Divine Liturgy, or the Lord’s Supper — is celebrated every Sunday at the Cathedral. Two services are offered to accommodate your schedule — other social and children’s activities are also available.

8:00 am – Holy Eucharist
Our early service is quiet and contemplative — there is no choir or singing. The service lasts approximately 45 minutes. We use Rite II (contemporary language) for this service, except for the last Sunday of each month when Rite I (traditional language) is used. After the service, coffee is available in the cloister for those who want to mingle — or, you can check out the Adult Forum.
9:00 am – Adult Forum
Scheduled between the two services is St. Stephen’s Adult Forum. Every Sunday we offer a presentation and discussion on a different aspect of our faith life. Topics include church history, biblical exegesis, theology, and Christian approaches to current issues. Coffee and light snacks are available.
10:15 am – Choral Holy Eucharist
This service draws on the rich tradition of Anglican church music — organ preludes, a choir, and congregational hymn singing. The services uses Rite II (contemporary language). The service lasts approximately one hour.
After the conclusion of our 10:15 service, we serve coffee, tea and a range of snacks in our parlors. This is a great time for conversation, camaraderie, and meeting new people. In the summer months when the weather is fair, we hold an outdoor Lemonade Hour instead.
