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.

An enormous thank you to all the individuals and families who made Easter flower dedications. Your contributions made it possible to decorate the Cathedral for Easter – beautifully! Please help keep flowers in the Cathedral every Sunday by making a flower dedication. Any amount may be given, but we do ask for a minimum contribution of 25 Euros. Click here to dedicate flowers for an upcoming Sunday. Thank you for your participation in this aspect of worship at the American Cathedral.
