2nd Service of Lessons and Carols for Earth Day

On the afternoon of April 21, 2024, we opened the doors for St. Matthew’s second celebration of Lessons and Carols for Earth Day. Msgr. Jameson, Cathedral Rector, presided at this 3:30pm service that featured the Cathedral Schola Cantorum directed by Tom Stehle, Pastoral Associate for Liturgy and Director of Music Ministries, in cooperation with the St. Matthew's Creation Care Green Team. Through carols, chants and choral music, coupled with meditative readings of poetry and scripture, we called to mind the gifts of creation and explored the current threats to the fragile health of the earth.
