Grace Cathedral in the News: Beyoncé Mass

By Ellie Bozmarova

Thursday, April 26

Beyoncé Mass was a powerful night thanks to attendees, volunteers and organizers. We’re also glad for the gift of a little extra media attention before, during and after this special service.

Didn’t get a chance to attend or want to relive the night? See media coverage below on the service.

“Grace Cathedral, an historic episcopal church known for its commitment to social justice, hosted its “Beyoncé Mass” as part of a weekly worship series intended to uplift the experiences of women and appeal to young worshippers. The unconventional service featured a sermon about liberation struggle, readings from a speech by civil rights leader Ella Baker, scripture readings by black women, a traditional communion, and of course, the singing of Beyoncé songs.” -Read the rest at Mother Jones.
