Cathedral Day 2020, planned for May 9, 2020, has been cancelled.

There are plans for a regional Confirmation service in the fall, and we look forward to the next Cathedral Day, which will occur April 24, 2021!

Cathedral Day is a celebration of the community of the Diocese of Olympia. This is a time for fun, fellowship, and an opportunity to see Saint Mark’s Cathedral in a new light. There’s something for everyone—no matter your age!
