Welcome to the American Cathedral in Paris
An English Speaking Church in Paris
Bienvenue à la Cathédrale Américaine!
We say “Welcome or Bienvenue!” to all who walk through our doors, and we try to live out what we say. Welcome in the name of Christ to a beautiful Cathedral and a congregation that includes old and young; rich and poor; gay and straight; and a mix of ethnicities and nationalities (we may be the American Cathedral, but we’re proud to be truly multi-national.)
A Place of Transformation
Coming Up At The Cathedral
Join Groupe Lambda and several partners in celebrating the Pride March on Friday, June 29, at 7:00 pm. This year, the theme of the annual celebration will be "The Power of Love," and it will be followed by refreshments in the parish hall. Everyone is welcome. The service will be primarily in French. Corinne Lanoir, the Vice-Dean of the Protestant Institute of Theology, will serve as guest preacher, and the Venerable Walter Baer, our Archdeacon, will celebrate Holy Eucharist.
Come sing Fauré's Requiem with the Paris Choral Society (PCS) on Saturday, June 30. This singing day is being led by our very own Zachary Ullery, Canon of Music at the American Cathedral. Accompaniment will be by Andrew Dewar (American Cathedral organist and PCS accompanist) and we will be joined by two professional soloists. The workshop will be all day from 10am – 5pm with mid morning & afternoon breaks, and one for lunch. Singing sessions throughout the day will end in a concert in the magnificent setting of the American Cathedral at 6pm. For more information and tickets, please visit the PCS website here.
This summer while at the American Cathedral, Theologian-in-Residence Greg Garrett is writing a book on race and American film for Oxford University Press. In this Forum, he shares with us some of what he’s learned from his two years of research and from curating a national program on race and film at Washington National Cathedral. He’ll also consider how the Christian tradition intersects with the themes of films from Birth of a Nation (1915) to Get Out (2017).
