Sunday, November 11, 2018 marks the centennial of the end of World War I. Fighting stopped on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. We are having a very special service here at the Cathedral to mark the occasion, beginning at 10:45. At 11:00 am, bells will ring out across Paris, and we will pause to keep silence and to remember. So please be here promptly at 10:45 so we can begin and have prayers and music before the silence. Veterans and currently-serving military are invited to come in uniform.
The Junior Guild will hold its annual Christmas Fair on the weekend of November 17-18. This is the once-a-year event when we try to raise as much money as we can for our charities benefiting women and children. Could you help us? We need items for the Silent Auction, for the Boutique (including either designer clothes or good quality clean clothes), and for the bric-a-brac table.
The Rev. Mark D.W. Edington of the Diocese of Massachusetts has been elected the next Bishop in Charge of the Convocation of Episcopal Churches in Europe. He was elected on the eighth ballot on October 20, 2018. The election took place during the annual Convention of the Convocation in All Saints Church in Waterloo Belgium. He will be preaching at the WWI Memorial Service held at the American Cathedral in Paris on November 11 at 10:45am.
The Cathedral’s Mission & Outreach Committee will begin discerning potential projects and initiatives for 2019. One objective is to increase engagement with local associations in Paris in need of volunteers. Are you currently volunteering your time or talents to a local charity or association here in Paris? Could your association use additional volunteers and a possible partnership with the Cathedral?
Message from the Dean: Thanks to all of you who came to the Town Hall meeting on Thursday night to meet and hear from our four candidates for Bishop. Paul-Gordon Chandler, Mark Edington, Steven Paulikas and Ben Shambaugh are all excellent candidates and I think we can’t go wrong!
Volunteering is the lifeblood of the Cathedral. Without our volunteers, many of the wonderful programs at the American Cathedral would not exist. Get involved today and help maintain the Cathedral as a place of vibrant community.
The Cathedral has three choirs that sing regularly at services and an extensive music education program for children and youth. In addition to the Cathedral Choirs, the Paris Choral Society is an affiliated chorus that performs several concerts each year. We are currently recruiting for all three choirs.
This Sunday we will be recognizing the promotions of our Children’s Choir members as they have progressed through the Royal School of Church Music Voice for Life curriculum. Click above to find out more.
