Christian Education at the Cathedral

Series for May 2016

Join us Tuesdays at 6:30 PM

(May 3, 10, 17, 24, 31)

 

In May the Cathedral will host a series of Tuesday evening discussions on hope in Christian, Muslim and Jewish traditions. Speakers will include representatives of the local Jewish and Muslim community as well as two speakers from the Cathedral. The series will close with a multi-faith service on Tuesday, May 31. Hope is the force that translates faith into action and leads faithful people to accomplish what otherwise might seem impossible. The sessions begin at 6:30 pm in the Kendrick Room.

May 3 The Rev’d Joseph Pace speaks about Syria, a land which today seems without hope, but over the centuries has been a dynamic center of Christian, Muslim and Jewish life and thought.

May 10 — Members of the Islamic Society of Western Massachusetts will speak about hope in Islam, especially in the Qur’an and in the hadith, or writings of the Prophet Muhammad.

May 17 Rabbi Amy Wallk Katz of Temple Beth El, the largest Conservative Temple in Western Massachusetts, will offer a Jewish perspective on hope.

May 24 The Hon. Mark Hambley, former US Ambassador to Qatar and Lebanon and Cathedral member, will speak about how hope is tried in diplomatic work, especially in the Middle East.

May 31 Bishop Fisher will host a multi-faith service at the cathedral with speakers from the three Abrahamic traditions; a reception will follow.

 Spring Harp Concert 

On the first Saturday of each month the Pioneer Valley Harpers Guild meets in the Cathedral.  This group of harp players from as far as Bellingham, MA and Greenwich CT is mostly made up of amateur harp players from the Pioneer Valley who love their instruments and exchanging tunes and techniques.  On Sunday , June 12th at 3:00 they will present their sixth annual concert in the Sanctuary.  The 8 member 'harp band' will perform as well as individuals and small ensembles.  Come hear harps play music from long ago to Simon and Garfunkle.

A free will offering will benefit Scholarships for some  Cathedral Choristers to go to the Royal School of Church Music program in Newport this summer.

Parking at the Cathedral can be a challenge, but we aim to accommodate you. We are reserving some handicapped spaces for those who attend 10am service. Spaces are along the back of the Cathedral, facing the Dr. Seuss statues. Sunday morning you may also park in the museum parking lots, past the Cathedral on the right on Edwards Street.
