A Special Event June 11th, 5pm
Please plan to attend this special service on Sunday evening, June 11, remembering our community’s tragic loss in the attack at the Pulse nightclub one year ago. Bishop Gregory O. Brewer will speak. Scripture and prayers will be offered, and we will light votive candles in memory of the victims. Counselors will be available to speak privately with anyone after the Vigil. This service will not include Holy Eucharist.
The Chancel Choir from First United Methodist Church will sing together with our Cathedral Choir. You'll also hear the Orlando Gay Chorus and the Orlando Fire Department Bagpipe Band.
A love offering will be requested to benefit SOMOS, a local organization that provides financial assistance to the families of the Pulse victims. SOMOS is one of the charities that is being supported by the Episcopal Diocese of Central Florida.
Ample free parking will be available in the lot on Washington at Magnolia, and in the Regions Bank Garage on Washington. Please see our ushers for details.
A similar Vigil service will be held at First United Methodist Church on Saturday, June 10, at 7:00 pm, also with combined choirs. That church is located on Magnolia Avenue at South Street. Parking is available at 142 East Jackson Street.
The Cathedral will also be open all day on Monday, June 12, for quiet prayer and reflection. Counselors will be available for you in the church. At 12:00 noon, our tower bell will toll 49 times, in memory of the victims. At that same time, countless other tower bells will toll 49 times throughout the city and around the world.
We are the flagship church of the Episcopal Diocese of Central Florida and we exist to experience, embody, and extend the timeless love of God in Jesus Christ.
We experience the God of the Bible in worship, using ancient practices of singing, scripture reading, incense, and the celebration of the sacraments.
Our worship impacts our life together as Christians as we embody our worship in nurturing community. Virtually every day of the week we offer opportunities to grow in the faith.
The good news of God's love in Jesus Christ is for the whole world, no exceptions. We seek to extend our experience and embodiment of God as a gift to our city and world!
