A service of readings and music celebrates Christ’s glorious entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday through his Passion on Friday. The service opens with palm branches waving and shouts of “Hosanna” but as the story of the passion unfolds, their shouts of joy turn to demands for his crucifixion; he receives a crown of thorns as he is handed over to be mocked and killed.

Commemorate the day Jesus celebrated the Last Supper with his disciples and washed their feet. Later that night, he went with them to the Garden of Gethsemane to pray. But the disciples fell asleep, leaving Jesus alone in his dark night of the soul. With music, prayers and readings, journey from the Upper Room to the Garden as we remember and experience the events of Holy Thursday.

Good Friday’s evening service is centered around the Requiem mass composed by Mark Hayes. Scored for orchestra, baritone soloists and chorus, this contemplative work uses English translations combined with Latin text for a musically reflective experience. This work includes six movements and other than the dramatic “Dies Irae,” each movement features both Latin and English texts.
The Cathedral Singers are excited to welcome the First Baptist Church Choir and their director, Steven Potts, as we join forces to present this magnificent work for Good Friday.
This presentation would not be possible without the generosity of Wayne Miller. We dedicate this service to the memory of our former soprano section leader, Kathy Miller.
Celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ with a joyful and festive worship experience. At 8:30am, we will have Holy Communion. At 9:45am, hear Dr. Dale Benson present carefully selected excerpts which will enable you to see, hear and feel the events of Easter week. At 11:00am, the Carolers will share special music along with music by the Cathedral Singers.
