Cathedral Sunday 2017: Come Home to a Floral Wonder
by David Miller, Cathedral Sunday Committee Chair
On Sunday June 11, the 4th annual Cathedral Sunday Celebration will be held, a day when all parishioners in the Diocese are invited to their second home church to worship, break bread, and learn more about the Cathedral, its ministries, history, and warm hospitality. Supported through the Cathedral’s Major Chapter and the generosity of our Bishop, Trinity Cathedral Sunday 2017 (also Trinity Sunday) will feature all the elements that made it such a success last year, plus a new one.
It begins with a Flower Festival Eucharist at 10:30. Bishop Stokes will be the Celebrant and the Very Reverend Marshall Shelly, Dean of the Northern Convocation, will preach. The entire sanctuary will be filled with glorious flower arrangements. Youth leaders will read and bring forth the elements. The Cathedral Choir is preparing special works. New for this year, the Bishop will also be performing confirmation. Following services, all are invited to a free luncheon highlighting the Cathedral’s many vital urban ministries. Afterward docent-led tours of the Cathedral and self-guided tours of the grounds will be offered, and Cathedral artifacts will be on display in the Chapel.
To make the Flower Festival Eucharist possible, a free flower arrangement workshop, (lunch and materials provided) will occur on Saturday June 10 beginning at 9:00 am, coordinated by the flower guilds of the Cathedral and Trinity Church, Princeton. We invite guilds from around the diocese, persons interested in forming guilds, and anyone who simply loves flowers to participate. The fragrant and colorful results are spectacular and will adorn the sanctuary and Synod Hall (see photos from last year's event, below.) To register contact Patrice D’Angelo at (609) 392-3805, or PatriceDangelo@TrinityCathedral.comcastbiz.net. All those interested in confirmation are urged to contact the Cathedral Office no later than May 31st.
We look forward to seeing you there for another wonderful event as the Cathedral community welcomes our diocesan family to its second home church.
