Advent Book Study

Waiting in Silence, Waiting in Hope

Come, Lord Jesus, Come! is the cry of the church during Advent. But in the haste and frantic busyness of this season, we rarely stop to enter the silence, listen to the yearnings of our hearts, and attune ourselves to the still speaking voice of God. So pause this year with other travelers as we read and share responses to Enuma Okoro’s thoughtful meditations Silence and Other Surprising Invitations of Advent. Okoro speaks to our waiting and longing, our hunger for God, our need for community.


Kwanzaa at the Cathedral

Kwanzaa is an African American holiday, which celebrates family, community and culture. Celebrated from 26 December thru 1 January, its origins are in the first harvest celebrations of Africa from which it takes its name. In this workshop, participants will learn about the history and traditions of the Kwanzaa holiday celebrations, including the seven principles of Kwanzaa and how they connect to everyday life year-round.

Advent Calendar 


Create Your Own Advent Calendar

The magic of Christmas is spreading hope, peace, love and joy in the world, and noticing those special moments when God is present in our lives.This season, we encourage you to set aside time daily to reflect on the Spirit of Emmanuel - God-with-us - and to spend time sharing God's love in the midst of family and community. Creating an personal Advent Calendar, marking the 24 days until Christmas, is great activity to set aside this sacred time.
