Even though the cathedral building is closed at this time, the community of Saint Mark's is vibrant and active. In addition to the regular offerings (including livestreamed liturgies, online prayer services, and children's offerings), here are some exciting upcoming special events:

JUNE 20: Who Do You Say that I Am? Christology in Daily Life with Canon Jennifer King Daugherty

Over time and across cultures, faithful people have understood Jesus the Christ in different, life-giving ways. Canon Daugherty will discuss some of these traditions, drawing on the book Jesus Through the Centuries by Jaroslav Pelikan.

Updated Music Series Concert: All-Bach on the Flentrop Organ

with No Comments

Hannah Byun, Wyatt Smith, and Susanna Valleau, organists

FRIDAY, MAY 14, 2021, 7:30 P.M.

For the second year in a row, COVID will prevent Alex Weimann from traveling across the Canadian border from his home in Vancouver to come and play the Flentrop. As a result, Alex Weimann’s All-Bach performance is now postponed to May 13, 2022 - a performance we will all greatly anticipate.

This year, three of Seattle’s finest young organists will take turns performing in this annual concert of appreciation for Capellmeister Bach. For the final concert of the 2020-21 Music Series -- and the second All-Bach Concert of the pandemic -- join Hannah, Wyatt, Susanna, and Johann Sebastian for a livestreamed concert of organ favorites from the mighty Flentrop organ of Saint Mark’s Cathedral.

The Mideast Focus Ministry's eighth annual series of film screenings and discussion begins February 19! The theme of this Film Series is "Who's at the Checkpoint?" Like most of the previous series, all events will be via Zoom.

Restrictions imposed by the film's distributors mean that the instructions will vary from film to film. Check the webpage for details as they become available. Join each post-film discussion using this Zoom link.

Schedule of films:

FEBRUARY 19  •  Advocate

MARCH 5  •  East Jerusalem/West Jerusalem

MARCH 19  •  There is a Field
