This Sunday it is both an honour and a privilege to welcome young people from across the city to join us for a Youth Service in their Cathedral. Our thanks go out to the hard working and energetic team from the Anglican Youth Movement who have thrown everything in to make all this possible.
In July we are welcoming the Anglican Youth Movement as they launch a Sunday evening Youth Service experiment. They are hoping to bring youth groups from all over the city for a new Youth Service project that will run through July and August. The hope is to see if there is a good take up for young people to come to a regular youth service in our Cathedral. The first service will be on 7 July.
In February the Salvation Army held their State of the Nation address in the Loaves and Fishes Hall. This year’s report Are You Well? Are We Safe? takes a well-being approach to considering our social progress as a nation. It looks at the differences between those of us who are doing okay and the most vulnerable New Zealanders.
On Sunday 27 January we celebrate our Patronal Festival with a Festal Choral Eucharist at 10am followed by a congregational lunch. We invite you to contribute to the lunch by bringing either a salad, dessert or something to drink. Pixie Rowe and a team will be coordinating. Please let the office know what you'll bring, and if you're prepared to help with running the lunch - either email email@example.com or add your name to the list on the desk at the rear of the Nave.
On Sunday the 26th of August, the Cathedral Choir will present A Mass for Ordinary Time, a jazz-inspired collaborative setting of the Mass by Norman Meehan and Michael Stewart. This was written for the Cathedral in 2016, and will be recorded by the choir in the next couple of weeks with a view to online distribution. Norman will lead a jazz combo of drums and string bass from the piano – come and sing some favourite jazz standards such as When the Saints go Marching In and Ev’ry time I feel the Spirit.
