Join us with family and friends for this special evening—St. Matthew’s first Earth Day Lessons and Carols, celebrated in the Cathedral with Msgr. Jameson, Cathedral Rector, presiding, and featuring the Cathedral Schola Cantorum 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 call to mind the gifts of creation and explore the current threats to the fragile health of the earth.

Music will include the works of renaissance composer William Byrd, contemporary Scottish composer Chris Hutchings, as well as a French carol, a Spiritual, two Shaker tunes, a 9th century Gregorian chant and a 12th century chant of Hildegard of Bingen, all giving us another window into Earth Day themes and the writings of Pope Francis in his letter on the environment, Laudato Si’!

Come early and spend a few moments enjoying the mosaics of St. Francis and his disciples in the St. Anthony Chapel.
