St. Andrew’s Cathedral
Choral Evensong sung by the Diocesan Choir
John Renke, director and organist
Choral Evensong will be sung at The Cathedral of St. Andrew on the Day of Pentecost, Sun., May 24 at 5:30 pm. This beautiful service will be sung by the Diocesan Choir, featuring music of C. V. Stanford and T. Tertius Noble. Cathedral Director of Music, John Robert Renke, will lead the choir and be the organist in this moving service.
The Day of Pentecost is the culmination of the Great Fifty Days of Easter. Pentecost celebrates God’s gift of the Spirit, which empowers all of the Church in ministry. It is the day in which all of God’s people are invited to open their hearts and minds to the life-giving Spirit which, comes upon us as the Church.

Announcing the Formation of the Pipe Organ Restoration Project – For at least the past twelve years the matter of restoring the Cathedral’s Aeolian-Skinner pipe organ has been deferred for various reasons. This organ is at the heart of the Cathedral’s life; it is central to the historical and symbolic significance of this Cathedral and vital to cathedral and community life. Its magnificent sound has harmonized hymns, resonated through the bodies of each person in the congregation, unified a community and inspired countless people through the generations.

Sundays, 9:00 – 10:00 am
The Loft at St. Peter’s Church
The program takes place in The Loft at the back of St. Peter’s Church, from 9:00 to 10:00 am on Sunday mornings. It is appropriate for children who are curious about the bible stories that they hear in church, enrolled in pre-school through the 4th grade of school. Older children are welcome to assist as “helpers” or participate in “The ROCK” (Relationships, Outreach, Christ & Kids) program located in the Sun/Son room at St. Peter’s.
May 24. The Mystery of Pentecost. Pentecost is all about transformation. Today we remember the changes that transformed the disciples to apostles when they received the Holy Spirit. But that doesn’t just happen on Pentecost, does it? We are invited by this elusive presence of God, this spirit that is as close as our breath but hard to “see.” Was there a time that you can recall recently when the Holy Spirit transformed you? What was that like? Did other people see it or feel it, too?
May 31. This will be the final Godly Play lesson in the Loft for the children until Fall.
Today will involve food, festivities, and fun!
