Holy Land Pilgrimage – A Journey to the Holy Land

The 2020 Holy Land Pilgrimage has been cancelled this year until we can safely travel internationally.


Grace Cathedral Retreats at The Bishop’s Ranch

The Diocese of California has two beautiful, dedicated conference and retreat centers. The Bishop’s Ranch and St. Dorothy’s Rest. The cathedral regularly organizes retreats for various groups to The Bishop’s Ranch in Healdsburg. Located on rolling hills in the heart of Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley, it is a serene and tranquil setting. 

Regular Cathedral retreats held here include senior retreats in the spring and fall and the family retreat in the spring. For more information, contact the Office of the Congregation at 415-749-6344 or

Congregation Retreat

What better way to celebrate Memorial Day than with your Grace Cathedral family? For three days, enjoy time with friends from the cathedral while someone else does the cooking. Hit the “pause” button, unwind and make new friends while the kids run on the grass, spin on the tire swing or splash in the pool on DioCal’s hillside ranch overlooking Sonoma County’s wine country. 

The Bishop’s Ranch is near Healdsburg, 74 miles north of Grace Cathedral. Driving times range from 1-2 hours, depending on traffic. 

The fee includes comfortable accommodations, meals & all activities for all three days. Sliding scale; partial scholarships available for pledging families of the congregation.
