The Rising is hosting two U2charist services for the cathedral community. A U2charist is a worship service, very similar to an Episcopal Rite 2 service, inspired by the music and message of the band U2. Our band has been working on this since September and has crafted a service as beautiful, edgy, and boundary-pushing as the music that inspired it. We hope you can attend and bring your friends! Bring anyone who needs to see that today's teenagers care as much about the world and everyone living in it as adults do -- maybe more so! For more information, contact Slocomb Reed.

ABOUT OUR WORSHIP

The Episcopal worship service is what is called a formal liturgy and we who are members here find it inspirational. It feeds us through the week. Our main service, Sundays at 10 a.m., starts with a procession. You'll hear our beautiful organ and you'll see our clergy and choir wearing vestments. During the service, we pray and sing together. We listen to a sermon that calls us to live our faith. We greet each other as we pass the peace. Then all of us are welcome to come forward to receive Holy Communion. We warmly invite you to fully participate in all of our services.

Lay Ministries

Train to be a Eucharistic Visitor.

We offer opportunities to members to serve as Lay Ministers within our worship service. There are opportunities to serve as acolytes, chalice bearers and lay readers.

The Acolyte Guild
are primarily youth volunteers who assist in worship by carrying the processional cross or crucifix; by lighting, carrying and extinguishing candles; by helping with the representation of the bread, wine and gifts of the people; and by assisting the clergy in the preparation of the altar for communion.

Chalice Bearers are lay persons licensed by the bishop, after a period of study and training, who administer the chalice at the Holy Communion. Generally, the cathedral has four chalice bearers at each principal Sunday service, with additional chalice bearers at special services.

Readers are lay persons who read the first and second lessons at the liturgy. At the 8 a.m. Sunday service, this person also reads the Psalm and the Prayers of the People and also acts as acolyte and chalice bearer. Readers are specially trained in congregational reading in a large space, and are assigned on a rotating basis. For more information, contact Canon Manoj Zacharia
