Cathedral Family Photo

Sunday, October 22, at 9:15 a.m.

This Sunday, we will gather on the front steps of the Cathedral for a photo to be taken of our Cathedral Family. It has been over 15 years since we last had one taken, and there are many new faces to add to our history. It will be held during the 9 a.m. hour in order to give members who attend the 8 a.m. and 10:15 a.m. services an opportunity to be there. Please plan to be there no later than 9:15 a.m.

500 Years, and Counting...

During the Dean's Hour

It was 500 years ago this October that Martin Luther posted his 95 theses, and launched a Reformation in the church’s life. A revolution in belief, as people rediscovered Christ’s threefold office: a Prophet, Priest, and King who came to bring us “out of error into truth, out of sin into righteousness, out of death into life.” And a renewal of worship, as people, especially in the Anglican Church, rediscovered Christ’s incarnation as “Word made flesh,” prompting fresh engagement of body, mind, and heart in worship. Join us for this Fall’s Dean’s Hour series in which we take stock of where the Reformation has brought us, and where we go from here.

The Cathedral is located in the central district of downtown Orlando, on the Southwest corner of Magnolia Avenue and Jefferson Street.

PARKING: On Sunday mornings, parking is available at no charge in the surface lot at the corner of Washington and Magnolia. Downtown street meters are free all day on Sundays.

That includes the Dean’s space and the 2 clergy spaces. We are asking everyone able to do so to park in the Washington Street lot or in the Region’s Bank garage.

Parking is available for Sunday services in the Regions Bank garage located on the northeast corner of Orange Ave. and Washington Street: Enter the up-ramp on Washington and receive an Entrance ticket.
