We will cover a range of topics, including parenting, marriage, women’s spirituality, faith at home, and friendship. While this group is specifically designed for moms, it is open to all women. Our first meeting will be Tuesday, July 10 and our first book will be Brene Brown’s Rising Strong: How the Ability to Reset Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent and Lead. Find your copy of Rising Strong in the Cathedral Book Store, or download it on Audible today!

Word to Your Mother will meet on the second Tuesday of every odd month, at 6 p.m. in the Lanier House. Contact Canon Holder,, for more information.

Faithful Conversations

Sundays this summer, join Canons Cathy Zappa and Lauren Holder as we engage in Faithful Conversations. Each week, we will invite a member of our community to sit down with us and talk with us about faith and society in a real and personal way. Our hope is that the courage our conversation partners bring to our discussions will equip us to go “out into the world to do the work God has given us to do.” Complementing this class will be a series of service opportunities—stay tuned! We will meet at 10:10 a.m. in Child Hall, starting June 3.

Staff Singer and Choir Volunteer Positions

The Cathedral invites auditions by singers interested in being considered for staff singer positions for the 2018-2019 program year in its Soprano, Tenor, and Bass-Baritone sections, as well as those in all voice parts who may be interested in volunteering in the Cathedral Choir. The Cathedral's 12 staff singers form the professional core of the Cathedral Choir (about 60 singers) as well as its chamber ensemble, the Cathedral Schola (about 35 voices), all of which sing in the style of the Anglican choral tradition.
