Live Streaming Our Services

Please visit sjcathedral.org/live for information on upcoming services and opportunities. Join us for morning prayer this Sunday, March 29 online at Saint John's Cathedral at 10:00 am. We pre-recorded this service before the governor's shelter-in-place directive, so we could all worship together from the safety of our homes.

A Note from the Canon Precentor, on Holy Week

 

In seminary, my liturgy professor would often say, "The whole of life is lived in Holy Week." From our Lord's triumphal entry in Jerusalem, to the tragedy of his execution on Golgotha, to the fear and elation of Mary Magdalene at the empty tomb when she mistakes the risen Christ for a gardener, the range of human emotion is experienced in the Church's Holy Week liturgies. This year, Holy Week will take on new significance and flexibility due to COVID-19. In place of public gatherings, cathedral musicians, staff, and clergy have pre-recorded short videos as resources for your observance of Holy Week at home. This pre-recording happened because of a growing sense among our clergy and staff that the mayor of Denver would eventually release a stay-at-home order, which he did, effective Tuesday, March 24 at 5:00 pm. 

Our Palm Sunday video will release at 10:00 am on Sunday, April 5; the Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Vigil videos will launch at 5:00 pm on those respective days; and Easter Day services will go live at 10:00 am on Sunday, April 12. All of these will be posted on the Saint John's Cathedral Facebook page accompanied by a link to the order of each service. As for our Holy Monday through Holy Wednesday observances: You are encouraged to use the abbreviated liturgical texts we have assembled for those days. In that document you will find a gospel reading, space for silent prayer, and a concluding collect appropriate to the particular day. All resources, links, and more information on our services is at sjcathedral.org/live. There will be no offering of Tenebrae this year. 

I am beyond grateful to the musicians, clergy, and lay staff who made this video project possible. Every note sung, collect prayed, and homily preached was done in a spirit of love for the people of Saint John's Cathedral. I hope as you use the video and written resources we assembled, that you allow yourself to simply be in Christ's loving presence. We trust that all that we've done to observe this holiest of weeks will be to Christ's glory, the upbuilding of God's people, and for the good of a suffering world in desperate need of a Redeemer who deeply identifies with our collective distress, despair, and joy. I wish you                                                                                                                                                                                                           Every Blessing, Canon Broderick Greer

 


From the Bishop of Colorado

Dear Siblings in Christ,

None of us knew how much we would have to give up in this particular Lent. This is not the season we hoped for; and, in these uncertain times we will have to dig a little deeper, leaning more heavily on the faith that is in us.

At this time, the Episcopal Church in Colorado should continue to forgo all public, in-person worship services and all other Sunday, Saturday, and weekday in-person gatherings (including weddings, funerals, memorial services, bible studies, prayer meetings, and non-emergency baptisms) from now until at least May 10 (as recommended by the CDC) or until we receive further information. Continue reading here.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              Faithfully, Bishop Kym Lucas
