Saint Paul’s is displaying our Pride flag at the entrance of our church as a sign of welcome, support, and love for people who identify as LGBTQIA+. As followers of Jesus, we have a long history of LGBTQIA+ inclusion here at Saint Paul’s. We strive to be a safe and welcoming place for all to worship and to offer their gifts and talents to God and community. It takes a
village!

This year’s Pride service is all about celebrating community, as we gather and celebrate with our friends and neighbors. It is always an affirming and amazing thing to be in the Cathedral with the LGBTQIA+ community worshiping and sharing communion together. Queer clergy will lead the worship service with support of members of our LGBTQIA+ ministry: Rev. Ramona Scarpace (Saint Paul’s Church on Lake of the Isles) is guest celebrant, and Rev. Georgianna Smith (Saint Clement’s Church) is guest preacher.

All are welcome!
