The year 2020 has been like no other, due to the overwhelming effects of the COVID-19 virus. The Cathedral has responded to increasing calls for action to minimize the effects, first by changing our methods of receiving communion, then by live-streaming services from the Cathedral with only service participants present, and then by presenting live-streaming services from Fr. Moki’s home in Chinatown with only himself and production assistant Dixie Kaetsu, with lectors and other participants submitting videos of their readings.
The ultimate challenge is the greatest celebration of the Christian year, Holy Week and Easter. A great deal of thought, creativity, and care has gone into planning and executing these critical services, and we present them here to salute and thank the participants and to encourage everyone to find inspiration in these unique worship services!
Please enjoy our unique Holy Week and Easter services:
- Palm Sunday, April 5, 10 am: Liturgy of the Word, with a special display of palms!
