A MESSAGE FROM DEAN THOMASON MAY 12, 2022 As you have likely observed in recent days, the number of people we know contracting COVID has increased substantially.

The bad news—vaccinations and booster shots do not seem to carry … Read More

A Video for Good Shepherd Sunday

The Fourth Sunday of Easter is known as “Good Shepherd Sunday” because each year the Gospel selection is on the theme of Jesus as the Good Shepherd, and Psalm 23 (“The Lord is my shepherd”) is always appointed as the psalm for the day. Saint Mark’s and our amazing videographer Chris Brown have now been livestreaming cathedral liturgies for over 5 years, and in that time the choirs of the cathedral have sung Psalm 23 in many different guises: Anglican … Read More

Treasures of the Cathedral: The Cathedral Windows

with 2 Comments

by Gregory Bloch, Director of Communications What are the defining architectural elements of Saint Mark’s Cathedral? I think the most common answers would be the glass and steel screen behind the altar, our reredos, or its counterbalancing visual element, the mighty Flentrop organ. But it seems that for some the building can be represented by an element that is, at least superficially, less attention-grabbing—the cathedral’s massive windows. Two examples have appeared recently, both related to the concerts produced by Abbey … Read More
