Cathedral Ministry to the Diocese of Pennsylvania
Home for the Diocese

Philadelphia Episcopal Cathedral is the spiritual and liturgical home for the 131 congregations that comprise the Episcopal Diocese of Pennsylvania. After the ancient pattern of the Church, the Cathedral offers a sacred place where the Diocese may draw together across parish boundaries and divisions of many kinds to worship in the beauty of holiness and to offer the best of ourselves before God. In a defining expression of our historic Anglican identity, Episcopalians gather in their Cathedral to offer thanks and praise to God in prayer and to advance the Gospel of Jesus Christ. As the seat of the Bishop, Philadelphia Episcopal Cathedral hosts Diocesan liturgies including ordinations and rites of initiation on major feast days, Epiphany, Easter Vigil, and Ascension, and is the site of the Diocesan annual convention.
