Exciting News From The Dean

August 03, 2018

Dear friends in Christ,

We are at an exciting point in the life of St. James Cathedral, and I am writing to update you on significant developments that will enrich and embolden the future of the Cathedral community and its mission.

You may be aware that we have for some time intended to undertake a capital campaign to repair some issues from the past as well as put the cathedral in the right place to grow into the future. I am happy to share with you that the wardens, Cathedral Chapter, and staff are enthusiastic to take the first steps in what will be an inspiring journey together.

Dean's Address

January 28, 2018

Delivered to the congregation of St. James Cathedral at the Annual Meeting on January 28, 2018.

In our gospel reading this morning, we heard Mark’s account of the beginnings of what our Presiding Bishop often calls "the Jesus movement." Since the New Year begun, we have heard Mark’s tell us of Jesus appearing at the Jordan River to be baptized by John and then starting his public ministry, by proclaiming that the time of the Kingdom of God has arrived; of his calling two pairs of brothers to leave behind the family business and follow him; and then, this morning, good Jew that he is, he rolls up in the local synagogue in Capernaum and starts to teach. 

Holy Week Letter from the Dean

April 07, 2017

See the Holy Week Schedule

We stand on the brink of the most important week of the year. We are who we are - the Church of God and followers of Jesus - because of what God did for us in this week to end all weeks. My only message to you today can be to encourage you to walk with Jesus anew in this celebration of the last week of his life, that you may be reminded as fully as is possible of the depths of God’s love and the new life which it brings the world.
