Summer and the Season of Pentecost
Summer. In the church calendar, it’s “the season after Pentecost”, also known as “ordinary time.”
For many of us, it’s a slower time, a time to breathe a bit, relax, slow down. A Sabbath season of the year – a time to rest, reflect and re-create. A time to be still, and know that I am God (Psalm 46).
Here at the American Cathedral there is less activity. Sunday School, the youth program, Sunday Forums, the choir – all are on hiatus until rentrée in September. Many parishioners are away. But one of the wonderful things about being in Paris is that now our pews are filled with more visitors, people from all over the world who are spending vacation time in this most beautiful of cities. Please know all are welcome!
Holy Baptism is the sacrament by which the Christian community welcomes new members into the Household of God. Infants, children, and adults are baptized during services on specific Sundays of the year and at the Great Vigil of Easter.

A Place of Transformation
The American Cathedral in Paris, officially the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity, was built in the 1880s to serve an expanding community of ex-pats and English-speakers abroad. It has since grown in its diversity and outwards in its ministry to the local community.
