All all welcome to attend worship in person, or via livestream at saintmarks.org/livestream.

UPDATE: As of Wednesday, December 22, all registration, including waitlist additions, have ended. Please join via livestream!


PLEASE NOTE: For the safety of all, The “O” Antiphons Liturgy, Pageant of the Nativity, and Christmas Eve services only will require pre-registration for all, and, for those 12 years and older, proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test* will be required for admission. Find links to register below.

Note that when you register for these special events, you will be given the option of sending your proof of vaccination in advance, which will speed up the check-in process on the evening of the event. Look for instructions in the confirmation email you receive when you register.

Pre-registration and screening will not be required for other events, including Christmas Day. Everyone must be masked at all times while inside the cathedral buildings (except when leading worship).

The designated "distanced" and "undistanced" sections of the nave will remain. Unvaccinated worshippers are asked to sit in the "distanced" section, but it is available for anyone who wishes to stay apart from others for any reason. Please note, however, that for all services, including those which require pre-registration, the distanced section is available on a first-come, first-served basis, so you may wish to arrive early.

* Negative COVID test must be a professionally-administered PCR test, with the test administered in the prior 72 hours. A home-administered rapid antigen test is not acceptable for admission.
In this brief video, Dean Thomason explains the special policies in place for the large Advent and Christmas services this year.
