Interfaith Service of Prayer
The Cathedral of Saint James is once again helping to coordinate an Interfaith Service of Prayer. We have been asked by the organizers of the South Bend’s Best Week Ever to host a prayer service at Howard Park. Plans are progressing to gather many faith communities on Sunday, June 4 which is for us, fittingly, the Day of Pentecost.
Ecumenical Bible Study
Sunday, June 4 , 12:30 PM

Join us for our monthly ecumenical Bible study with our friends from St. Augustine Catholic Church, Kern Road Mennonite Church, and the Cathedral of Saint James. All are welcome!!
Resolved to learn more about the Bible this year? Interested in getting to know some of the wonderful people at the Cathedral a little bit better? Come share faith and fellowship at Raising Cane! This group for Senior Citizens (or whomever) meets on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of each month. We dig into the Gospel for the upcoming Sunday and reflect upon what it means in our lives. All are invited (but by no means required!) to bring a treat to share.

“I Will Bless You, and You Will Be a Blessing”
A Conversation on Marriage at the Cathedral of Saint James
In 2015, The General Convention of the Episcopal Church authorized rites for same-sex marriage for use in dioceses where the local Bishop permitted their use. At the same time, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled against laws prohibiting same-sex marriage, thus making it legal throughout the country. Last year Bishop Sparks issued a pastoral letter indicating he would extend the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony to same-sex couples in our diocese. The Bishop also required that congregations must first engage in in a process of discernment in an effort to develop consensus among the Body of Christ gathered in each faith community. The Cathedral of Saint James has long strived to be a welcoming and affirming congregation, but now that same-sex marriage is no longer an abstraction and members of the Cathedral community have requested this sacrament, it is time for us to take up this question formally.
During Eastertide, our adult forum will focus on the five discussion topics in I Will Bless You, and You Will Be a Blessing, a study document that was prepared for the Special Committee on Marriage at the General Convention in 2015 and later adapted for broader use. The entire document is available free in pdf format online. All of theses conversations will inform the Cathedral Chapter in their discernment as we move towards this new sacramental possibility in our community.
