A Retrospective: Holy Week and Easter 2014
Grace Cathedral was bursting at the seams during Holy Week and Easter. From Palm Sunday to Easter Day, we welcomed nearly 7,000 people for services. We welcomed guest preacher Dr. Esther Mombo of St. Paul's United Theological College, Kenya, at our Good Friday service. Glorious music was sung by the Grace Cathedral Choir of Men and Boys and Camerata, our volunteer choir. From the powerful sounds of Francis Poulenc's 4 Lenten Motets at Wednesday evening’s Tenebrae service to the exuberance of Let All the World in Every Corner Sing by Ralph Vaughan Williams on Easter morning, music accompanied our walk to the Cross and our celebration of the Empty Tomb.
In the nave, our current exhibition Graced with Light
shimmered in the dark of the evening and shone in the brightness of the day, representing our prayers going up and the grace that enters our life daily.
