This exhibition probes confrontations and encounters between humans and the natural world. The works explore contrast of the man-made and the natural, the beautiful and the horrific, the revered and the disregarded, posing questions about value, care, loss, and neglect.

Exhibition brochure is available here.

From our Dean on Our Return to the Cathedral

My dear Cathedral family, 
It was a joy beyond description to gather together outside for the Feast of the Pentecost after fifteen months of worshipping only remotely.  Through the grace of God and the modern miracle of vaccination, we will now be able to celebrate together the Holy Eucharist inside the Cathedral sanctuary. Please join us this Sunday, back in the spiritual home which we love and do not take for granted. 

As we gather, I would like you to be aware of the following: 

  • The City of Philadelphia has lifted restrictions on social distancing.  Our chairs will be configured in the usual pattern around the altar table for the Season after Pentecost.  There will be sufficient seating for you to choose to sit further apart if you wish. 
  • Effective today, June 11, masks are no longer required in Philadelphia for those who are vaccinated. If you have not been vaccinated, we ask that you do wear a mask throughout.  Even if you have been vaccinated, we understand that you may choose to wear a mask. Masks and hand sanitizer will be readily available for your use. PLEASE NOTE: As required by Philadelphia City masks ARE NOW required of all persons attending service at the Cathedral.
  • We have had an assessment of the air flow, exchange, and filtration in the Cathedral and they are excellent.  We also have HEPA filters in place to support our safety. 
  • We will conduct fellowship hour following the service.  Coffee and lemonade will be available, along with pre-packaged snack items. 

If you should have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to me before Sunday. We will find our way together in this as we joyfully resume worship in the beauty of holiness in our beloved Cathedral. 
God’s grace and peace to you, 
Judy+

From Dean Judy's reflection from 6.21.2020: 

"God hears and God sees.  It is well past time now for all of us to do the same."  Read the entire reflection here.
