A Prayer For This Time of Change and Transition
The Transition Committee invites our Diocese to join together in prayer as we prepare for the consecration on May 20th:
Getting to the Cathedral ~ Public Transportation Advised
The weekend of the consecration will be a busy one in the vicinity of the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, as Columbia graduations will be taking place then. Parking will not be available on the Cathedral Close and may be hard to find elsewhere. We recommend that if you plan to arrive by car, you either reserve space at a local garage as soon as possible (see link below) or plan to park outside the immediate neighborhood.
Better still, plan either to travel by public transportation or to ride in one of the buses that are currently being coordinated from the Mid_Hudson, Westchester and Staten Island areas. Further details about these buses will be provided as soon as details have been finalized.
No Large Bags or Backpacks at the Service, Please!
Cathedral Security request and advise those attending the consecration service not to arrive with large bags or backpacks.
