Michaelmas Diocesan Confirmations (In-Person and Zoom)

Sunday, September 25 @ 6:00 pm 7:00 pm

Join us as we observe the Feast of St. Michael and All Angels also known as Michaelmas, with the bishop of California, the Rt. Rev. Dr. Marc Handley Andrus, preaching and presiding. On this joyous occasion, we also welcome adults and youth from throughout the Diocese for the biannual diocesan confirmation service. All are welcome at the service both in person and online.

Like the familiar feast of Christmas/Christ-Mass to honor the birth of Jesus on December 25th, our living heritage honors St Michael the Archangel and all the angels on h with Michael-Mass. Michaelmas is also the name given to the autumn term in many English universities. As the angels adore God in eternity and are seen as messengers in salvation history, Michaelmas honors our community’s shared life of service to God and to humanity. At Grace Cathedral, this feast has been a joyous occasion for the institution of many bishops and deans, including our current Bishop and Dean.  It’s a luminous and numinous invitation to inaugurate this season of celebrating and re-dedicating our shared life and witness as the community of Grace Cathedral!
