The Cathedral welcomes back those who are comfortable gathering inside for the 8 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. worship services. The Cathedral Pandemic Task Force has lifted mask and registration requirements. For worshipers who are fully vaccinated and boosted, masks are optional but should be worn while singing. Everyone is asked to continue to physically distance from each other, meaning at least two empty seats between pods. This change is consistent with governmental and Diocese of Missouri guidelines.
The 10:30 a.m. service will be livestreamed each week for those not ready to gather inside and for Cathedral members and friends who will continue to join us from around Missouri and the country.
Christ Church Cathedral has a rich and varied worship program that reflects the diversity of our congregation and our faith community.
Holy Eucharist, Rite I, 8 a.m.
At 8 a.m., worshipers enjoy a quiet, meditative atmosphere with emphasis upon the poetry of the spoken word. The service follows the traditional Rite I liturgy found in The Book of Common Prayer.
Choral Eucharist, Rite II, 10:30 a.m.
The 10:30 a.m. Holy Eucharist includes music and follows the traditional Rite II liturgy with communion administered from the High Altar.
The 10:30 a.m. service includes a special Liturgy of the Word in adjacent Bofinger Chapel. A “storyteller” leads the lesson, accompanied by an adult “shepherd” who helps direct the group. This age-appropriate service is designed for children ages 3½ to 10. Younger children are welcome if accompanied by an adult. Children return to the Cathedral at the Peace.
