In this special weekend of community, connection, and creativity, all ages come together to actively explore the Kingdom or Reign of God—what it is, how to recognize it, and how we help to bring it about right here, right now.

Through story, conversation, justice-seeking, art, music, gardening, bread-baking, and more, we'll delve into three of the kingdom parables in our summer lectionary: The Parable of the Mustard Seed, the Parable of the Leaven, and the Parable of the Pearl of Great Price. Previous iterations of this offering have occurred as a series of weekly or monthly meetings, but for 2023, participants will gather Friday evening—including dinner and Compline—and Saturday morning and afternoon—including lunch, snacks, and an outdoor Eucharist. There will then be an the opportunity to help with the Tent City 3 community supper on Sunday evening.

On Friday: We'll gather in Bloedel Hall for a meal and hear from Dean Steve about The Kingdom of God. Then we'll move to the cathedral and outside for a variety of opt-in activities. The evening concludes with Compline, and we'll be finished no later than 8 p.m.

On Saturday: We'll gather in the cathedral and begin our day together, then participate in a variety of opt-in activities as we explore the Kingdom parables and how we create community that helps build up God's realm of peace, justice, and love. Lunch will be at 12:30 p.m. in Bloedel Hall, and we'll end our time together by gathering on the outdoor labyrinth for a simple Eucharist at 2:30 p.m.

Can’t commit to the full experience? You are more than welcome to come for Friday evening only, or for a half-day on Saturday (morning or afternoon). Simply indicate which meals you will be present for on the registration form.

Fee: $30 for both days, with a maximum of $75 per family. Please register using the form here or below. (If you can only attend one of the meals, please pay $15 per meal.) The ability to pay should not be a barrier to participation. Email Canon Barrie with any concerns:

The Women’s Compline Choir 2023

with No Comments
Click below to enlarge a feature from The Rubric about the first Women's Compline Choir services:


SUNDAYS, JULY 30 & AUGUST 6, 2023, 9:30 P.M., in the cathedral nave, broadcast, and livestreamed

Following their debut in the summer of 2019, the Women's Compline Choir, led by Saint Mark's Associate Musician Rebekah Gilmore, has become an annual tradition at Saint Mark's, chanting the Office of Compline in place of the all-male Compline Choir and presenting special repertoire for women's voices, including world-premiere compositions and arrangements.

In the summer of 2019, the men of the Compline Choir traveled to the U.K. for two weeks, serving residencies in Canterbury and Salisbury. To cover the services during absence, Saint Mark's Associate Musician Rebekah Gilmore was asked to assemble an all-female choir, comprising some of the most accomplished choral singers in the Seattle area. The services they sang, the first all-female services in the 63-year history of Compline at Saint Mark's, were deeply moving to many, and may be heard here and below.

The Women's Compline Choir now gathers to chant the service several times each year, usually in the summer. Although during the pandemic of 2020 the full choir could not assemble, a quartet of singers drawn from the women's choir chanted the office on July 19 & 26, 2020. The full complement of singers gathered again on July 18 & 25, 2021, although the services were closed to the public. At last, on July 17 & 24, 2022, a full choir featuring some of the finest choral singers in the region gathered for an in-person Compline liturgy open to one and all. The 2023 services will be July 30 & August 6, 2023.

Learning to be Kinder to Nature—Lecture/Demonstration by the Royal Wedding & Coronation Florist

with No Comments

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 2 P.M., in the cathedral nave; find the link purchase tickets here

Tickets have now gone on sale for this very special event, presented by the Slow Flowers Society and co-sponsored by Saint Mark’s Cathedral. Learning to be Kinder to Nature is a lecture, floral design demonstration, and book signing with Shane Connolly, an influential role model in sustainable floristry and environmentally-mindful design practices. His artistry is guided by the garden and the seasons, and the values brings to flower sourcing are inspiring. Seattle audiences will learn from Shane in person during his lecture and floral design demonstrations. This lecture will also encompass Shane’s remarks about the Sustainable Church Flowers project in the U.K. as he shares his message with flower enthusiasts, organic gardeners, and floral professionals.

His clients range from great public institutions like The Victoria & Albert Museum, the Royal Academy of Arts, and the National Portrait Gallery, to a veritable who’s who of the great and the good of British life. He is perhaps best known for his public work for The Royal Family. His most recent commission was The Coronation of Their Majesties The King and Queen in Westminster Abbey in May 2023. But he also designed the flowers for their marriage at Windsor Castle in 2005 and for the wedding of The Prince and Princess of Wales in 2011.

Shane has approached all these iconic moments with the same respect for nature, season and setting. Everything is thoughtful, in all senses of the word. Shane has designed events in countries as diverse as the USA and India, and always with the
same aim: to leave the smallest footprint behind and be led by what is local and available. Shane works with the Royal Horticultural Society to improve sustainability in floristry in their annual shows, and he is also a judge at RHS Chelsea. He has written five books and teaches his approach to flower design all over the world.

Tickets: $45 per person; $70 includes a signed copy of A Year in Flowers by Shane Connolly. Learn more and find the link to buy tickets here.

Share Your Creation Care Story!

with 1 Comment


In volume 2, Judy Raunig-Graham tell the story of her climate-related actions, Carolyn White on clothes-drying, and a delightful video from Nicole Thomson about motor vehicle idling.
In the first installment, Elizabeth Clark-Stern reflects on choosing to eat vegan, Marjorie Ringness shares a strategy for saving water in the kitchen, and Richard Hartung writes about buying second-hand.

July 2023

The Creation Care Ministry has created a Story Sharing Project to allow parishioners to share actions they are taking related to Creation Care, as a way for parishioners to share their good work and to encourage others to help reduce climate change. Stories can be about any action you are taking, large or small, to care for creation and mitigate climate change. Stories can take the form of a brief written essay, a video, a photo album, an infographic, or a piece of podcast-style audio. Sharing these stories can help others to learn, lead to new ideas about what to do, and be an inspiration for others to take action too.

You can also share a short idea by typing in the "reply" box below!

Creating and Contributing Your Story

Families and individuals in the congregation can decide on the story they want to share. If you'd like input on their idea, check with Richard Hartung at

Once you've decided on what you'd like to share, you can tell the story using whatever media you prefer. Write a story, record a short video or podcast using their phone, create a collections of photos with captions, or use another way of communicating their story. Written stories should be 300 words or less. Videos and podcasts should be less than 2 minutes and preferably less than 90 seconds. (While writing or recording a longer story can be tempting, many people will not read or watch stories longer than these length!) Anyone can contribute and everyone is welcome to contribute more than one story.

If there's a story you'd like to tell, but you don't feel that you can write/film/record it yourself, please reach out so the ministry can match you up with a writer or other collaborator.

The story should focus on a specific action you have taken related to Creation Care, including what you did, how you did it, and any impact you saw from taking action. Even small actions can make a big difference, so sharing any action you’ve taken can be beneficial. Some examples of possible stories include:

  • Expanding from meatless Monday to add on Meatless Tuesday.
  • Walking to meet a friend or to go shopping rather than driving.
  • Installing a heat pump.

When you have completed your story, please send it to Richard and the Creation Care Ministry team will read/watch/listen to the story and may share feedback or suggest changes.

Once the story has been reviewed and finalized, it will posted on the cathedral website, and shared on social media, in cathedral newsletters, and other channels. Storytellers will be credited in the post, although you may remain anonymous if you prefer.

For more information about the storytelling project or to provide suggestions, please contact Richard Hartung at, Marjorie Ringness at or Kathy Minsch

Projecting Justice: Protect Trans Lives

with No Comments
Learn about the original May 2021 iteration of the Projecting Justice project, highlighting the names of people killed by the police, here

JUNE 21, 2023

In 2021, Saint Mark's collaborated with the ACLU of Washington State to use the unique visibility and position of the cathedral building as a beacon on the hill to make a powerful public statement about violence and justice in our city and our region. For two weeks, we projected names of people in Western Washington killed by the police, with the simple message that each one "should still be alive today." Read about this project, and all the names that were included, here.

This year ACLU-WA and Saint Mark's are again collaborating, this time to make a public statement in light of an unprecedented wave of anti-LGBTQ+ legislation, and the atmosphere of threat that trans people—both across the country and in our own cathedral community—are now experiencing:

Protect Trans Kids, Protect Trans Lives

On their website, ACLU-WA explains the project:

Protect trans kids. Protect trans lives. These two messages illuminate Saint Mark's, seen across Seattle during the city's biggest Pride celebrations, from June 20 through June 29. So far this year, state lawmakers across the country have introduced nearly 500 anti-LGBTQIA2S+ bills, most of which target transgender and non-binary people. The ACLU has been fighting back by working in state legislatures, taking unconstitutional policies to court, and mobilizing supporters to protect trans rights. This Pride month, and every day, we are defending everyone’s right to be themselves – fully, freely, and with joy. Learn about a recent legislative victory around gender affirming care here in Washington. Celebrate LGBTQIA2S+ Pride at these events across Washington all summer long. Check out the national ACLU’s podcast episodes, Finding Trans Joy Through Sports and Let Trans Kids Speak for Themselves.

The projections will be visible after sunset on the west façade of the cathedral building (facing Interstate 5) through June 29.

Canon Eliacín Rosario-Cruz Accepts Call in New York

with No Comments

A message from Dean Thomason

Dear Friends,

I write to share the news that the Rev. Canon Eliacín Rosario-Cruz is resigning from his position at Saint Mark’s Cathedral effective mid-July as he accepts a new call in New York. His statement to the cathedral parish is shared below, and his excitement for the multicultural opportunity it presents is palpable in his message.

He and I have been talking about this opportunity for some months now, and I am glad for the multicultural setting it presents for this servant of Christ who has unique gifts to offer the Church. We have been enriched by his ministry among us these past two years, and we are grateful for his work especially in the area of restorative justice, and of course serving as a member of the clergy team leading worship, preaching, teaching and delivering pastoral care. His last Sunday at Saint Mark’s will be July 16, and we will bless him and his family around the font after the 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. services, as is our custom. We will have cake to share in his honor also.

Please join me in thanking Eliacín for his ministry among us and blessing him and his family in their new ventures.

Faithfully yours,

The Very Reverend Steven L. Thomason
Dean and Rector

A Message from Canon Rosario-Cruz

Dear Ones,

With mixed emotions, I share with you that my season of ministry at Saint Mark’s has bloomed into a new ministry opportunity. After prayerful discernment, I have accepted the call to serve as Priest-in-Charge at Holy Cross/Santa Cruz in Kingston, New York. Holy Cross/Santa Cruz is located in the beautiful Hudson River Valley. I’ll be pastoring and leading a multicultural community with the vision to be a unified congregation that worships in two languages but otherwise strives to be one in all other aspects of their common life.

I am convinced that this new call from the Spirit is as clear and firm as the one that brought me to you in 2021. My last Sunday with you will be July 16. You have been a wonderful congregation that showed love and care for my family and me. I am grateful to you all, the fantastic parishioners of this Cathedral-Parish, Dean Thomason, Canon Daugherty, Curate Stahlecker, the staff, the vestry, and lay leaders for the wonderful opportunity to serve here at Saint Mark’s.

I speak on behalf of my family when I say that you have blessed our lives. I am a better person and a better minister because of you. I am grateful to God and you for the sacred time of my ministry here. You will continue in my prayers, and I ask that you continue to pray for my family and me.

With deep gratitude,

The Rev. Canon Eliacín Rosario-Cruz

Mothered by God: Divine Feminine and the Black Madonna

with No Comments

Book Study with The Rev. Canon Carla Robinson

In preparation for Dr. Cleveland’s workshop, The Rev. Canon Carla Robinson offered a two-part discussion about Cleveland’s book God is a Black Woman  on Wednesday, May 10 and Wednesday, May 24. Free event, offered in person and online via Zoom. Complete video of Parts 1 & 2 are now available here.


A Saturday Workshop with Christena Cleveland, Ph.D.

SATURDAY, JUNE 3, 2023, 9 A.M.–2:30 P.M., in person in Bloedel Hall and online via Zoom; registration required for either option. 

The Divine is not limited to one gender or race, but for many people the dominant image of God they’ve experienced is that of a white male. Such a poverty of metaphor limits not only our understanding of the Holy One who overflows all human categories but also reinforces white supremacy and patriarchy. Join Dr. Christena Cleveland as she explores the Divine Feminine, especially in the context of her 400-mile walking pilgrimage across central France in search of ancient Black Madonna statues.

Cost: $65 (for both online and in-person participants). Scholarships available. Includes a light lunch and snacks for those participating in person. Registration required.
