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.
