Welcome to Philadelphia Episcopal Cathedral

A seat for the bishop, a home for the diocese, an open door for all

From our "Statement of Commitment and Action": We proclaim by word and example the gospel of Jesus Christ and we reaffirm our baptismal covenant: To respect the dignity of every human being, strive for justice and peace among all people, and seek and serve Christ in all persons. We are concerned about the increase in statements and actions in our nation that target particular groups of people based on their skin color, their religious affiliation, their gender or orientation, their abilities, or their country of birth. These are artificial divisions that we vehemently denounce as discriminatory and disrespectful.

Churches from across the diocese are asked to have their Sunday service at The Philadelphia Episcopal Cathedral for the 10:00 a.m. service of Holy Eucharist where one of The Philadelphia 11 - the Rev.
