Michaelmas Choral Eucharist

Recurring event see all

Sunday, September 26 @ 11:00 am 12:00 pm

The Rt. Rev. Dr. Marc Handley Andrus, Bishop of California, preaching and presiding at a festival Eucharist in honor of St. Michael and All Angels.

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 September 29th 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!
