Christmas at Grace

Grace Cathedral’s doors are open 365 days per year, and at Christmas, the light shines even brighter. Our beautiful Christmas services are free and open to all, and the schedule is below.

We also present one of the city’s finest Christmas concert series, with our own resident Choir of Men and Boys, the Bay Brass, American Bach Soloists, and even a chance to sing along! Make it part of your holiday tradition.

As a non-profit organization, Grace Cathedral flourishes by the generosity of its donors. We are grateful for your gifts of any size, which support our mission and vision throughout the year.

Make a Christmas gift today.
