Easter at the Cathedral
Alleluia! Christ is risen.
The Lord is risen indeed. Alleluia!
We proclaimed these words on Easter, but did you know that Easter season (or Eastertide) lasts for 50 days? Eastertide ends on the Day of Pentecost (June 9), which celebrates when the Holy Spirit descended on the disciples in the form of tongues of fire.
The word Pentecost means “fiftieth day” in Greek.
Come celebrate the Great Fifty Days of Easter with us at the Cathedral, in worship and in community.
All are invited to join us, just as you are. You belong here.
New to the Cathedral? Welcome! Visit our Newcomers page to learn more about what to expect, parking information, and more.

Now it was Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary the mother of James, and the other women who told this to the apostles. But these words seemed to them an idle tale, and they did not believe them. - Luke 24:10-11
So, Jesus’ closest friends, the ones who knew him best and admired his ministry the most, did not believe the women who told of the resurrection after their return from the empty tomb. Maybe they rolled their eyes at one another. Perhaps they made comments like, “that’s interesting, ladies, but we know better…stuff like that does not happen.”
There are people all around us and within the church who think like those apostles did. And that’s perfectly fine. Because those same apostles, who sat rolling their eyes, later became ardent evangelists who gave their lives for the sake of the gospel. It can happen to any of us, too. All it takes is an encounter with the Risen One. It happens every day on the road, in the breaking of bread…in the most ordinary of places. It will happen to you if you are open to it. Eye rollin’ and all!
— The Very Rev. Stephen Morris
