The Service Bulletin for October 25, 2020 is here.

Indoor Sunday morning service

We now offer Sunday morning services in the Cathedral at 9:30. Seating is limited and we ask that participants observe certain rules, including wearing a mask and maintaining six feet of distance from others not in your family. Our pews have been set up in accordance with conversations with County Health officials.

Here’s a brief explainer:

  • Please continue to register online for this and any Sunday service before you come.
  • Our usual safety protocols apply: wear a mask and sit in family groups, at least six feet from any others. In consultation with Shawnee County Health Department, pews have been roped and marked off to ensure a proper distance can be maintained.
  • Getting in or out: enter the building through the cloister door; exit through the nave doors. (Those are the ones at the “back” of the church if you’re facing the altar.) If you don’t “do” stairs, you can exit through the St. Nicholas door. If using the handicapped entrance on the Polk St. side, just exit through the same door.
  • Restrooms (including the family restroom with the changing table) will be available, but in a more limited capacity for now.
  • Due to the service start time, Virtual Coffee Hour has been moved to 11:00 a.m.
  • Worship format will be Spiritual Communion.
  • A bulletin will certainly be provided, like always. Please take it with you and drop it in your recycling bin at home.
  • Finally, we won’t pass the plate for now, but we certainly will continue to accept pledges and other gifts. Please use the plexiglass boxes located in the sanctuary.
  • We know that some are just not comfortable returning to worship yet. Know that we fully intend to continue offering Sunday worship services through our regular online channels.

Grace Episcopal Cathedral is a house of prayer for all people and a loving place where those who join us can be themselves. We are a community of faith–working, playing, worshiping, serving together, and seeking God’s will in all we do.

A loving and joyful fellowship of believers, we celebrate individuality and diversity in community. Our unity is not in how much we agree with each other but in how much we love one another. We invite and welcome you to experience Grace—“A House of Prayer for All People!”
