Midweek Formation

There are a number of ways to continue your formation in community throughout the week, including Bible studies and Cathedral Night events.

  • Cathedral Night Events

    SAGES Spiritual Groups
    Wednesday Evenings, from 7 to 8 pm, from February 21 to March 20

    Spiritual Awareness and Growth in Everyday Situations, striving to help us live our faith and find God in daily moments. These affinity groups meet to build spirituality in community. Whether you joined in the fall or are new, you’re warmly welcome to self-select into the gathering that best fits your needs: Women’s, Men’s, Beloved, 20’s and 30’s.

    Parents’ Pause Lenten Gathering
    February 21-March 20, 5:15 to 6 pm

    How do we practice Lent in the fullness of our families’ daily lives, and how do we make meaning of this season for our children at various ages? What Lenten practices feel meaningful – and achievable – in our real life imperfect messiness? How can Lent bring us as parents some sense of God’s peace instead of obligation and a vague sense of failure? All parents are invited to gather on Wednesday evenings during the Cathedral Night season, before dinner, for some gentle and guilt-free ideas for Lent.

  • Canon Katie's Bible Study

    Monthly on the Second Tuesday of the Month
    10 am in the cathedral library or 5 pm on Zoom

    Matthew’s gospel lays out Jesus’ genealogy in the first verses of Chapter 1. Among the many men listed are five women – some of them rather unlikely ancestors in his royal lineage. Join Canon Katie in a year-long exploration and discussion of the foremothers of Jesus: Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, Bathsheba, and Mary. Please sign-up here for the Zoom link to be used throughout the year.

    For more ways to connect, learn, and grow in faith and in community, please explore the Connect page. 

  • Sacred Ground

    Sacred Ground is an 11-session film- and readings-based series about race, grounded in faith. Small discussion groups are invited to walk through chapters of America’s history of race and racism and their connections to family story, economic class, and political and regional identity. Sacred Ground is a non-judgmental, non-shaming space to explore the history of race and racial injustice in America within a faith community, developed by The Episcopal Church’s Becoming Beloved Community initiative. You can read more about Sacred Ground here.

    Saint John’s Cathedral will be offering two new Sacred Ground Dialogue Circles beginning the first week in February, facilitated by lay leaders and supported by staff and clergy. For more information, contact Tina Clark at .

  • Living with the Psalms in Lent

    Wednesdays at 1 pm in Room 107, until March 20

    Join Dean Richard and Canon Katie every Wednesday during Lent at 10 am in the Cathedral Library to discuss John Bell’s Living with the Psalms. Bell, a Scottish minister, hymn writer, and lecturer, explores the Psalms as they relate to daily life, drawing on personal testimonies and offering mindful suggestions for prayer. He reminds us that the Psalms were known and often quoted by Jesus and that “Jesus’ spirituality was deeply rooted in the Psalms.”
