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 Rubric is available on this website, and in print in the cathedral nave. To receive a copy by mail, call 206.323.0300 or email info@saintmarks.org.
