Each Sunday service of worship at the Cathedral includes the Holy Eucharist, also called Holy Communion or the Lord’s Supper, the principal act of worship on the Lord’s Day. The structure of Word and Sacrament features a sermon and an opportunity for the congregation to receive Christ. 

From the Very Rev. Sam Candler, Dean of the Cathedral: “At the time of the Offertory of the Eucharist, we ask worshippers to offer whatever you have to God. And each of us has something to offer. Musicians offer music! Those with money offer money. Sometimes we offer our joy and happiness. Sometimes all we have are pain and sorrow to offer. Every one of those offerings is accepted by God.

During our Offertories, we offer to God whatever is available to us. Then, when the celebrant prays the Eucharistic Prayer, God blesses all those offerings, wherever they are. And they are very spread out these days! But God blesses them. Then, when we usually receive those offerings back, in communion with the consecrated Body and Blood of Christ, I we do receive communion, just in a different way. Wherever we are, we receive back whatever God makes available to us, in whatever form God makes available to us at that time and in that place. Thus, we share spiritual communion.”
