Sunday 5 p.m.—An Order For Evening With Holy Eucharist
This final service in the Cathedral’s Sunday schedule is a special and unique event. The liturgical focus is on a meditative and contemplative setting where worshipers can bring to a close the week past and prepare for the week to come. Most often held in the Cathedral Nave, the service is almost entirely sung and chanted, with congregational responses led by a cantor and organist team.

Sunday 5 p.m.—Choral Evensong (3rd Sunday of the month)
Choral Evensong is offered on the third Sunday of the month (October–May) at 5 p.m. by the Trinity Choir. This contemplative service lasts about 45 minutes and includes hymns, scripture readings, prayers, chanted Psalms, canticles and a choir anthem. With its origins in Archbishop Thomas Cranmer’s Book of Common Prayer (1549), Evensong is one of the most uniquely Anglican liturgies and is sung in cathedrals and parishes throughout the world. Eucharist is not offered at this service.
12:05 pm
Mark the day with the Holy Eucharist. The service includes readings from scripture, a psalm and expressions of faith. This intimate gathering for prayer and worship is a wonderful time to pause during the work day.
