Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine

The Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine, the mother church of the Episcopal Diocese of New York and the Seat of its Bishop, is chartered as a house of prayer for all people and a unifying center of intellectual light and leadership. It serves the many diverse people of our Diocese, City, Nation and World through an array of liturgical, cultural and civic events; pastoral, educational and community outreach activities; and maintains the preservation of the great architectural and historic site that is its legacy.

People from many faiths and communities worship together in services held more than 30 times a week; the soup kitchen serves roughly 25,000 meals annually; social service outreach has an increasingly varied roster of programs; the distinguished Cathedral School prepares young students to be future leaders; Adults and Children in Trust, the renowned preschool, afterschool and summer program, offers diverse educational and nurturing experiences; the outstanding Textile Conservation Lab preserves world treasures; concerts, exhibitions, performances and civic gatherings allow conversation, celebration, reflection and remembrance—such is the joyfully busy life of this beloved and venerated Cathedral.

Congratulations, 2021 graduates! We're so proud of The Cathedral School of St. John the Divine and ACT Programs NYC students and the hard-working teachers and staff who made this unusual (to say the least) year a triumph. We wish all the best to the graduates and their families, and a well-deserved rest to the educators who guided them through a year full of challenges. (This photo, taken a few years ago, makes us optimistic for a school year without physical distancing in the near future!)

The Cathedral will be open with limited hours this weekend, so be sure to plan your visit accordingly. Friday we will be open for sightseeing, prayer, and meditation from 9:30am - 12pm. Saturday we will be closed all day to accommodate for our indoor concert with @nypopsup and Moses Sumney! There will also be three outdoor sets by other artists happening throughout the day on the Pulpit Green. These performances are free to attend with no registration required, so feel free to join us outside on Saturday! More info at stjohndivine.org Sunday we will be open our normal hours, but it will be the last day to view @aljoscha.aljoscha's Miraculous Drought. This beautiful sculpture has hung from our ceiling for 18 months and has come to symbolize for many the Cathedral's commitment to staying open during the pandemic. It is now time to deinstall this glorious installation, but we are so grateful for our community's overwhelming love for this work. Join us this weekend for one last look at this weightless, ethereal, and awe-inspiring sculpture.
