About The Rubric

The Rubric is Saint Mark's Cathedral's magazine, in continual publication since December of 1890. Its mission is to tell the story of who we are as a community: as a parish, as a cathedral for the Diocese of Olympia, as Episcopalians, and as Christians. Articles showcase members, volunteers, programs and ways we help transform this community and the world. The current issue of The Rubric will not be printed and mailed as a physical magazine—all the content will be available online on this page.
