Feast of the Transfiguration and St. James Sunday


Sunday, August 6, 2017

The Feast of the Transfiguration is a major feast in the Christian year appointed for observance on August 6.

The Feast of Saint James, our patron, is appointed for observance on July 25. Due to vacation schedules, it has become our habit to move our Feast day to the nearest convenient Sunday.

This year we get to do both on the same day.


We will celebrate the Holy Eucharist: Rite One at 8 am.

Choir rehearsal for our pick-up choir begins at 9 am.

At 10:15 am, our celebration of the Holy Eucharist will take place in five movements featuring Scripture, Song, Prayer, and Juggling.

Yes, juggling.

After the 10:15 service, join us for a special hospitality hour. If you can, please bring finger food hors d’oeuvres, vegetables, crackers & cheese, and desserts to share.


Juggler LaMar Yoder will perform a full show. (40-45 minutes)

A free will offering will be taken up for Mr. Yoder. His normal fee is $750, so please be generous.


Invite your family, friends, and neighbors!

Shortcakes on the Blacktop Wrapup


We had our best year ever thanks to the support of the South Bend Community. We sold 3000 shortcakes in a matter of 5 hours!!! We hope to distribute the proceeds to:

  • St. Margaret's House
  • Habitat for Humanity
  • The Shoe Tree Project

in mid-August.

Heritage and Hope...


Look for updates to our building program in the near future.

Raising Cane


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.

Sunday Adult Formation

3rd floor St. Margaret's House

“The Vocation of Discipleship”

In the midst of our busy lives it can be difficult to hear God’s call. How do we know what God is calling us to? What does it mean to be a follower of God’s call in our life given these worldly demands? What is the relationship between God’s call to salvation and to faithfulness in our daily lives?

Christian Formation

Christian formation classes for all ages. We believe that formation in Christ is a life-long process, so come engage your mind, body, and soul as we seek to know Christ more and more.

All Sunday morning groups meet from 9:15 am—10 am in their respective locations.
