The Year of Bridges

Every year, Grace Cathedral picks a theme to unify and inspire our community to improve their lives and the world. Our 2020 theme is bridges. Join us as we explore this theme about building connections and spanning divides through worship, the arts, civic conversation and service.

The coming year will see the 150th anniversary of African American male suffrage, the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage, the 75th anniversary of the United Nations and our presidential elections. Over the coming months we will be talking a lot about how we form connections with people who are different than us. How do we reach across divides that separate us from other people and from the rest of creation?
